Microtransit

Microtransit fits somewhere between public mass transit, such as a bus, and private individual transportation, such as cars. An advantage of this service is that it offers highly flexible routing and scheduling of minibus vehicles shared with other passengers. Microtransit also allows for an individualized service in response to demand. As it provides an opportunity for agencies to control resource use and reduce road congestion in their communities, microtransit is likely to become more mainstream in the future.
