Have you heard about microtransit, and think it could be applicable to your area?
Join this on-demand workshop, bringing an overview of your area's characteristics with you, and Civic Sphere will explain how to assess opportunities for microtransit based on lessons learned from the past 4 years of microtransit implementation in the USA as well as personal experience through Civic Sphere's projects (see "on-demand transit/microtransit program design"). Microtransit involves the application of on-demand and flexible services to traditionally fixed-route transit. Learn about the factors that contribute to a successful microtransit pilot, how to define 'success' for pilots, and steps for scaling-up from a pilot. You'll leave the online workshop with an understanding of the various types of microtransit, opportunities and limitations for your area, and how to take your first steps towards testing microtransit.
After registration with Eventbrite, you will receive a link to access the workshop materials immediately - homework assignment, worksheet, and video. Don't hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
