Public transit—buses, streetcars, and sometimes rail—has long been an important means for residents, commuters, and visitors of places to get from Point A to Point B without a car. Some transit agencies are experimenting with new technologies to provide on-demand transit services. Similar to personal ridehailing, on-demand transit allows users to request a ride through an application to access door-to-door or corner-to-corner (which involves a short walk) service. Like traditional transit, these rides have a set fare and typically can be paid for with a transit fare card. Hear an overview from the American Public Transportation Association, and recent experiences from Dallas Area Rapid Transit and the Central Ohio Transit Authority, both before and during the COVID pandemic.
