ZED Digital, an Ohio-based corporation, announced the expansion plans of its cutting-edge Maas solution called ZIG.
The ZIG app provides multimodal trip planning combining public transit, rideshare, bikeshare, scooters, driving directions, live traffic, toll, intercity trip planning all in one single interface.
ZIG key differentiator includes cost comparison by mobility mode including bus, subway, rail, rideshare, bikeshare, scooters, taxis, Greyhound, and toll roads. Riders can now compare all the transportation options with costs prior to making a decision. ZIG users can sync up MaaS to their calendar to enable trip reminders and real-time trip planning to appointments.
ZIG transmits live transit alerts and generates PDF schedules in real-time. No more outdated schedules on your site.
In addition to traditional trip planning features, users can search and find places to visit and rate the safety of the places with respect to crowding, social distancing, queueing, and contactless payment policies.
“The underlying reason for low ridership is because people are concerned about the safety of places they visit. The ZIG app will take public safety awareness to the next level. We hope to restore public confidence in going places,” said Sumithra Jagannath, president of ZED Digital.
ZIG is free to riders and agencies, without ads or subscriptions, and is now available in 14 cities in the states of Calif., Fla., Ohio, and Ky. ZIG will expand to 50 cities by the end of 2021.
