RSVP Now for More Mobility, Stronger Connections: Transactional Data Specifications
Join NADTC and AARP's Public Policy Institute for a two-part series on Transactional Data Specifications (TDS).
Part 1: Introduction to TDS
Tuesday, May 4 | 2:30 - 3:30 PM EST | Virtual
Demand-response transportation often fills the gaps in transportation for those who cannot drive. DRT is typically door-to-door service and can include Dial-a-Ride, ADA complementary paratransit, volunteer driver programs, or even taxis and ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft. For the customer, scheduling on one or many of these options can be difficult and confusing. That is where Transactional Data Specifications (TDS) can simplify the process. 
This introductory session will explain what TDS is, and how even small providers can benefit by expanding the availability of demand-responsive transportation.
Part 2: TDS in Practice
Tuesday, May 6 | 2:30 - 3:30 PM EST | Virtual
The second session in the TDS series will feature the work done using Transactional Data Specifications in rural Lake County, Oregon. Lake County, Oregon is a frontier county with 2 non-profit organizations that provide the only demand-responsive transportation in the area. They have overlapping territories and many of the same clients. Learn how these two organizations committed to collaboration that relies on TDS to coordinate rides and reduce duplication, and how implementation has impacted their services and clients.
