Kalamazoo Metro to launch services similar to Uber, Lyft

  • Date: 01/18/2023

The Kalamazoo Metro is working to launch a service similar to Uber or Lyft.

“People could call for a ride or text or use a phone app to get a ride. And within 30 or 40 minutes, a ride would show up and take you to your destination,” said Metro Executive Director Sean McBride.

According to McBride, the new app will be different from anything the city currently offers.

“This purely provides a different level of personalized service to get people to and from their destinations within Kalamazoo,” he said.

The “micro-transit” service stems from a recommendation by a comprehensive operational analysis study.
