On-Demand Transit Coming to Fort Erie
TORONTO, June 23, 2021 — Pantonium Inc., a software company offering on-demand transit solutions, today announced a new partnership with Regional Limousine to offer an on-demand transit service in the Town of Fort Erie, due to launch on October 4, 2021.
This innovative service is powered by Pantonium’s macrotranist software which dynamically and flexibly routes vehicles, in real-time, to optimally match all transit agency resources (vehicles, stops, drivers, fuel, etc.) with rider demand in seconds.
With Macrotransit, cities can solve the problem of underserved communities and limited access to bus routes by delivering a superior customer experience and enhanced transit accessibility. Using this technology, cities are able to “do more with less” and generate operating efficiency and economic productivity outcomes.
With this new service, the Town of Fort Erie will offer an on-demand transit service using minivans and allow citizens to book transit trips from an app, online portal, or by calling an agent. Boarding without booking is possible too; riders simply board and tell the driver their destination. Riders will be able to choose where and when they travel and go between any two transit stops in the town without a transfer.
With an anticipated launch date of October 4, 2021, residents of Fort Erie will be able to book on-demand trips Monday through Saturday from 6:00a.m to 9:00p.m. After the initial launch, service will be reviewed for a possible extension of services and may be expanded to cover later evening hours and/or Sundays.
