Q: What is microtransit?

  • A: Microtransit is defined as on-demand, shared public transit transportation that serves passengers using dynamically generated routes in response to individual or general consumer demand. It uses smaller vehicles (vans) and that utilize a mobile GPS platform. Passengers may be expected to make their way to and from common pick-up or drop-off points. Door-to-door service is not available.
