With the launch of the GO Request mobile application, customers can report concerns and safety issues along Texas-based Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) routes using iPhone or Android smart phones.
Smart phone users simply open the application, select an issue, take a picture and tap “submit” — the application picks up the exact location and sends the issue directly to the agency staff member responsible for addressing the issue.
“Our passengers told us they wanted convenient tools to communicate with DCTA,” noted DCTA President Jim Cline. “This technology responds to that request and allows us to more efficiently and effectively serve our customers.”
The GPS and camera features built into the iPhone and Android smart phones make it simple for passengers to alert DCTA officials about a variety of issues around the clock while the passengers are on the go. Passengers will know their issue went to the right person without ever going to an office or sitting down at a computer and they can also receive status updates on their submittals. This efficiency allows DCTA to improve the passenger experience while saving the agency staff time and money.
The smart phone application is the latest enhancement to the agency’s commitment to improving the passenger experience. The citizen relationship management solution is hosted by Government Outreach Inc.
