Feonix – Mobility Rising is leading a regional initiative to enhance paratransit access for passengers in southeast Michigan.
The new app – Michigan Ride Paratransit – will increase the speed and ease at which regional mobility services are available. The app is designed first and foremost for accessibility, including screen-reader optimization and large-font text compatibility. The new technology offers next-level efficiency, with rides able to be requested in 30 seconds or less. The capabilities of the platform will lead to a savings of time and money for transit agencies, and enhance the experience for all system stakeholders.
Any registered user of the paratransit system can download, create an account, tap, and go. These improvements translate to hope for passengers who can now more fully engage in the opportunities and benefits found within their communities. Funding for this project was provided by the State of Michigan’s Michigan Mobility Challenge grant program.
