The Routing Company announced it has commenced a pilot project to provide on-demand transit technology with the Lassen Transit Service Agency (LTSA).
The project makes LTSA the first agency in California to deploy TRC’s on-demand Pingo app, according to the company's news release.
Formed in 2001, LTSA provides public transportation in Lassen County, California, located in the state’s northeast region near Tahoe National Forest, and operates the Lassen Rural Bus (LRB) service.
LRB’s extended Saturday service and its new 7:00-8:00 p.m. weekday service will be powered by a new on-demand point-to-point service called LRB Direct, which will operate as a pilot through the end of 2022. The app also helps connect passengers to existing fixed route networks.
The recently launched pilot will service the Susanville and Lassen County areas with TRC’s Pingo app, providing on-demand transit services.
