Microtransit in Birmingham, AL gives riders choices

  • Date: 07/23/2022

Part of a paradigm known as “Mobility-as-a-Service” (MaaS), the initiative allows Chloe and her brother John to move around the city efficiently and independently. Furthermore, the vehicle is a six-passenger van, ensuring a high level of security for users and an occasion to establish new social relations with people from one’s neighbourhood who are following a similar route.

This MaaS initiative is promoted by Via, a leader in on-demand public mobility that aims to transform transportation and logistics systems into highly efficient digital networks. The new service has had very positive effects on the city of Birmingham: access to work and healthcare has increased by 79%, while access to schools has increased by 85%.
