City of Milton Canada Dynamic Transit Pilot Project Go Connect Service Report
5 minutes Date Enacted: Feb 23, 2015
The City of Milton’s GoConnect Service is a 12 month pilot project run through Metrolinx, RideCo (a private app developer), and the city. GoConnect is a technology-enabled, door-to-door/hub-to-hub dynamic shuttle service that is city-run but operates similarly to a private model for ridesharing or ridesplitting. The pilot project is funded by Metrolinx and operated by Milton Transit and a local taxi provider. GoConnect is a unique model for a public-private partnership providing sustainable transportation using new technologies to enhance and streamline current transit operations.
