FlexRide FAQs

  • FlexRide is a transit mode that creates dynamic routes based on rider-requested pickup/dropoff locations and predetermined stops and times. Within a set service zone, riders can submit a next-day pickup request at their home and be dropped off at a preset stop and time to arrive at their destination on time. TripShot aggregates all similar requests, creates a dynamic route and notifies riders of their scheduled pickup time. The reverse can happen for commutes home.

  • FlexRide provides better fleet vehicle utilization, customizable service parameters, door-to-stop rider convenience, talent attraction, more transportation options and more predictable arrivals. The aggregation of riders can mean lower operational costs compared to an on-demand transit system.

  • Scheduled transit solution software enables higher vehicle utilization, automation of time-consuming manual tasks and a better experience for riders. 

  • Where are your riders traveling to and from? Are you trying to promote a return to office by removing transportation as a barrier? Do your trips have a common origination or destination location? Do you have a fixed route where many of the stops have no riders? Do you want to dynamically route your vehicles within a predefined service area?

  • FlexRide can be a more efficient transportation mode for public transit route management because it allows for better vehicle utilization while improving the rider experience. FlexRide allows public transportation systems to scale their services with convenient transit that accommodates smaller communities and demand.

  • FlexRide optimizes a rider’s journey by creating dynamic routes based on pooled pickup locations and a preset dropoff location and time (or vice versa). By using a scheduled transit solution like FlexRide, riders can get to their destination conveniently and efficiently, as requests are grouped into streamlined routes. 

  • If a rider’s preferred request does not have space, they can join a waitlist and see their position on the waitlist in real time. If a ride isn’t on the waitlist, it’ll be scheduled when FlexRide uns. If the FlexRide option shows ’Seating Waitlisted,’ riders select their preferred time options. Riders can select more than one option and they will be ranked according to the order of selection. TripShot will show their waitlist position if relevant. Should seats open up, the waitlist position will be updated.

  • The scheduled pickup time will be sent to the rider’s TripShot mobile app as a push notification following the scheduled cutoff time. If another rider cancels their FlexRide request, the rider pickup may be adjusted based on the secondary scheduler threshold. Note: Administrators must confirm the scheduled cutoff time and secondary scheduler thresholds.

  • The threshold for this is set by the transportation team.
