Summary

The Valley Metro, regional public transportation agency in Maricopa County, AZ, is planned to partner with RouteMatch Software, the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department, and Arizona State University for a pilot program, Valley Metro Mobility Platform. The program will build upon Ridekick, Valley Metro’s existing mobile application. The envisioned Mobility Platform will enable users to receive real-time travel information, purchase tickets for both public and private transportation modes, and utilize an optimized trip planning service through the integration of non-Valley Metro operated services such as Uber, Lyft, GR:D Bike Share, Zipcar, etc. This pilot program is one of FTA’s MOD Sandbox 1.0 program.

Contributed through a partnership between the Shared-Use Mobility CenterITS America and the Federal Transit Administration’s Mobility on Demand Program.
