Research Institution
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a “Customer Based Mobility” application, named Liberty, for enhancing transportation options for vulnerable populations and senior citizens in rural and small urban communities. Utilization of technology for route optimization and customer trip booking in rural and small urban transportation agencies is currently very limited due to the lack of options available on the market which meet the challenges of low cellular bandwidth and the sensitive price thresholds for local agencies, small businesses, and non-profits. The technology (optimized for limited bandwidth) will integrate transportation options from rural demand response transit agencies from multiple counties, non-profits, volunteers, non-urgent medical personnel, and create opportunities for new rural rideshare/taxi services..
