Boost Commuting Confidence with External Codes

Offer Undeniable Reliability for Your Shared Transportation Program

Imagine that you’ve just finished a late meeting, you hurry to your transit stop only to realize the last shuttle of the day has just left. For many riders, this situation would mean a stressful scramble for a ride home after a long day. TripShot's External Codes feature helps companies avoid this situation and provide confidence in commuting.

When paired with Fixed Route and/or On Demand, External Codes can support a shared transportation program with undeniable reliability.

Sometimes meetings or projects run late. Missing the last company shuttle doesn’t mean your riders have to be stranded. TripShot-powered transportation systems can offer External Codes to riders, they can easily grab a provided rideshare code from the TripShot rider app and use it get home as soon as possible.

Emergency Ride Home
