Via announced a new partnership with the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) that will grant every transit agency in the Commonwealth of Virginia free access to Via’s Remix transportation planning software.
The partnership will equip more than 40 Virginia transit agencies of all sizes and settings with Via’s Remix transit planning software.
How Via’s Remix Helps Transit Planning
Remix’s planning tools are designed to help planners easily visualize transportation access gaps in their networks and evaluate where service optimizations can be made.
Every transit agency will receive the full suite of Remix on-demand and fixed route transit planning tools, including Remix Transit and Remix On-demand Planning, as well as training and ongoing strategic guidance from Via’s team of transit professionals.
Remix Transit is a tool that enables analysis of demographic and transportation data to enable transit planners to plan and adjust public transit networks that ensure reliable, equitable coverage, even in times of service outages and unexpected disruptions.
Remix’s transit planning tools are also designed to foster collaboration and communication, allowing DRPT and transit agencies to share project updates with one another, as well as receive streamlined input from local officials and community members.
"The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation is proud to partner with Via to provide the Remix technology-enabled transit planning tools to public transportation agencies across the Commonwealth," DRPT Director Jennifer DeBruhl said. "Technology plays a key role in planning and design to deliver efficient and effective public transportation for Virginians."
