Innovation-driven mobility consulting and transit planning, pairing advanced simulation technology with our experience as the world’s leading developer of public mobility technology.
We help transit agencies, cities, transit operators and other partners develop and optimize multimodal transportation networks and explore how innovative transit solutions can improve quality of service, increase ridership, lower costs, and improve efficiency.
Globally, our team has guided over two hundred public and private partners through complex service planning exercises and feasibility studies. We are ready to support you too.
UTA partnered with Via Strategies to conduct an in-depth study and develop a long-term strategy for the implementation of microtransit and improvement of paratransit across the UTA-service area, which spans nearly 1,400 square miles. The study analyzed potential cost, ridership, and quality of service under different scenarios. Three key use cases for microtransit were explored: first and last-mile trips, community transportation, and off-peak coverage.
Via completed a study on behalf of the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) evaluating the feasibility of microtransit in Montpelier, Vermont. Local transit agency Green Mountain Transit Authority (GMTA) identified several underperforming fixed-routes as potential candidates for replacement with on-demand services. VTrans and GMTA were also interested in improving paratransit and specialized transportation services using microtransit.
Hall County, Georgia engaged Via to assist in a study and simulation that replaced some underperforming fixed routes and dial-a-ride services with microtransit in the Gainesville-area. After implementation, the new service cut the cost per trip by 50% and grew ridership by 20% in two months.
Adaptability and flexibility are key, as each community and network requires a custom approach. Our wide range of offerings include:
Whether independent driver-partners or transportation service providers, we can help you manage things like real-time shift planning, background checks, drug and alcohol testing, and much more.
