Called the Multi-Modal Cloud Platform, or MMC for short, the TDS system enables Indian Trails to expand connections with almost 80 independent interlining bus companies nationwide, according to Indian Trails' news release.
Interlining gives travelers the ability to buy one ticket online, or from an agent, for a trip that includes two or more carriers in the national transportation network.
Using Transcor’s MMC ticketing platform, Indian Trails added that it will continue to interline with all other carriers nationwide, including those providing intercity service in Michigan, such as Miller Transportation, Barons Bus, and soon Adirondack Trailways, which plans to begin Detroit-Toronto service this spring.
“We’re excited about the expanded capabilities of the new MMC ticketing platform,” said Chad Cushman, president of Indian Trails. “This new system will allow Indian Trails to grow its current network of interlining carriers throughout the country while providing our mutual customers with a much-improved ticket-buying experience.”
Starting March 1, Indian Trails will also expand its own daily routes to include new service between Detroit and Chicago with three roundtrips per day. The new service will connect with all of its daily schedules north of I-94.
