Mobility-on-Demand Study

The Rhode Island Public Transportation Authority (RIPTA) statewide Transit Master Plan identified Mobility on Demand (MOD) as a potential mobility solution for the state.

RIPTA was particularly interested in exploring microtransit, a general public on-demand service that serves a designated area and typically is summoned via a smartphone app, one of the potential MOD solutions, as a possibility to augment the existing fixed route transit service network and address equity concerns associated with identified “transit deserts” across the state.
