The future of mobility is evolving at a rapid rate and the role technology plays is at the forefront. We are actively developing solutions designed to anticipate the needs of our clients and passengers and that always keep the customer experience at the forefront.
Answers the “Where’s My Ride” Question for Passengers
Continuing to improve the passenger experience is key for all our innovations. Our myTransitManager app is designed to improve communication between our paratransit passengers and their drivers. The app can review either current day or future trips. It not only provides updates to customers when their vehicle is scheduled to arrive, but also provides caregivers with real-time pick up and drop off information and vehicle location.
Understanding our passengers
T.ex, our formal audit of the passenger experience, is a rigorous program and methodology designed to assess all aspects of the customer experience. T.ex deploys multidisciplinary teams and various passenger personas to identify all the opportunities to create a better passenger experience through tangible action plans.
