Indiana’s Metropolitan Evansville Transit System (METS) announced the launch of METS Micro, an on-demand, app-based public transit pilot service in partnership with Via,…
In January, the transit department started a 12-month pilot program for free, on-demand rides, similar to Uber or Lyft, within city limits. Transit director Aaron Kennedy said the department has provided over 39,000 trips to about 1,400 unique passengers from January to November.
The year of free rides has taken countless employees to their jobs, children to daycare, gym-goers to their workouts and family members to the hospital to visit with loved ones.
“Employers like it because they can support getting their employees back and forth. It’s allowing seniors to rely on transit to maintain their freedom,” Kennedy said. “We’ll pick you up at your residence and take you where you need to go.”
