Centennial First and Last Mile Pilot, Centennial, Colorado, 2016
5 minutes Date Launched: Aug 17, 2016 Date Ended: Feb 17, 2017 Dates given are approximate.
The First and Last Mile Pilot (FLMP) was a public-private partnership between the City of Centennial, CH2M, the Denver South Transportation Management Association (DSTMA), Southeast Public Improvement Metropolitan District (SPIMD), Lyft, Via Mobility Services (Via), and Xerox (Conduent).
Beginning August 17th, residents were able to request a free Lyft Line (carpooling) ride to and from the Dry Creek LRT station. The Go Denver app powered by Xerox integrated scheduling and payment systems for both transit and Lyft, thus allowing users to select the FLMP options including “Light Rail + Lyft Line.”
FLMP project partner Via provided wheelchair-accessible transportation with its rideshare service in order to accommodate users with disabilities and to ensure full compliance with the transportation access and nondiscrimination requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
For those who were unable to use the Go Denver app, the City’s call center representatives were able to book rides on their behalf through Lyft’s enterprise platform, Concierge. The FLMP program had a budget of $400,000 and temporarily replaced the City’s Call-n-Ride system. The pilot program ended February 17, 2017.
