Replacing Underperforming Fixed-Route Buses with On-Demand Transit

About this webinar

Attention transit agency planning staff, schedulers, performance analysts, and consultants! Join us for this webinar on September 29th from 1:00-2:00pm EST as transit planning experts Sam Moffitt and Alex Mereu provide an overview of when and how to consider replacing underperforming fixed-route buses.

Our speakers from RideCo, the industry-leader in on-demand transit, will discuss opportunities to better meet the needs of the public while reducing costs and improving performance metrics.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • How to analyze your fixed-route services to determine where microtransit can provide a more convenient, cost-effective, and productive service.
  • How to do a cost analysis for both your fixed-route service and a potential microtransit service.
  • The practical realities of transitioning a fixed-route service to on-demand, including marketing the service, notifying riders, and removing the bus.
