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.
