TransLoc unveils new version of OnDemand

Posted on October 6, 2015

A new release of TransLoc OnDemand enables university transit providers to have a complete, automated, mobile-centric solution that meets the needs of students and simplifies the process.

TransLoc OnDemand provides an Uber-like mobile experience for passengers and drivers, while giving transit administrators the most effective platform to operate a state-of-the-art demand-response system. Within a single interface, passengers can see all available fixed-route options and request on demand rides with a single click. Drivers are guided along the most efficient route and no longer have to coordinate pickup locations while on the move. OnDemand’s fully-automated dispatch and smart ridesharing capabilities bring new levels of efficiency and have proven to help agencies provide more rides, drive fewer miles and reduce Safe Ride operating expenses.

OnDemand has recently been deployed at select universities where the results are exceeding even the most optimistic expectations, ushering in the new era of mobility and transit technology.

New York University (NYU) recently replaced their existing system with OnDemand to run their point-to-point Safe Ride program in Manhattan. In the first month the number of passengers served per day has increased by 32% and rider wait times have decreased by 15%. In addition, these improvements were obtained without adding a single vehicle or driver to their existing safe ride program.

Emory University recently upgraded their safe ride program using TransLoc OnDemand. Within a month the number of rides given per week has gone up 53%, and inbound dispatcher calls have gone down 49%. Like NYU, the gains at Emory have been achieved without increasing the number of miles driving or adding a single new vehicle to the system.

TransLoc OnDemand is helping university transit officials do more with less. OnDemand makes it possible to provide more rides, satisfy more passengers and surpass technical expectations; all while driving fewer miles and reducing overall safe ride expenses.
