AC Transit RFP for Demand Responsive Flex Service, Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, California, 2015
5 minutes Date Enacted: May 20, 2015
AC Transit released a request for proposals from a qualified transit information systems firm to assist in a one year flex service pilot project to test the concept of a demand-responsive flexible service. The pilot provides 30-minute service to two fixed schedule points in low-density low-demand areas. The rest of the route is completely demand-responsive, with passengers being able to request trips via phone, internet or mobile application. The project has since been awarded and the pilot started in August 2016.
