Eno Center: Data on DemandDate Published: May 26, 2022
Transit agencies across the country are testing mobility-on-demand (MOD) projects in order to evaluate whether or how such pilots could be part of their long-term service plans. This includes integrating private options into agencies existing trip planning applications, using a private operator for on-demand first/last mile (FMLM) connections to transit stops, and providing real-time flexible route service to replace underutilized transit routes. Importantly, these private companies have access to detailed data about how their network operates within the overall transportation system. Public access to those data is crucial for good service planning, operations, accounting, and evaluation.
