MOBILITY ON DEMAND DART is testing more flexible transit services, leveraging technology and enabling people to choose the travel modes that best serve their needs. Using grant dollars from the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Sandbox Demonstration Program, the agency is developing technology needed to modify its GoPass mobile app to integrate on-demand software and payment platforms for pilot programs such as demand-responsive service and dynamic carpooling. Since many riders do not live or work within walking distance of a bus stop or train station, the agency is testing new transit services to solve that “first-mile/last-mile” challenge. DART also is watching progress on emerging technologies like autonomous vehicles and new models of ride-sharing/ride-sourcing services. 14
