Public transit on-demand.

In the near future, transit agencies will compete with an influx of autonomous vehicles and ridesharing brands. This is how planners will utilize on-demand routes to make public transit competitive by 2020.

Remix is revolutionizing transportation around the world, currently it’s a web-hosted application for planning public transit systems. While more agencies join their growing list of customers, ridesharing and autonomous vehicle technology paint a futuristic picture where public transit may not function like it does today.

You may have heard of on-demand routes or microtransit: bus lines that serve specific stops with an advance reservation, but cost the same as a regular fare while delivering a faster travel time—a futuristic hybrid between public transit and ridesharing. Remix lives on the cusp of new transit technology, so I addressed an increasingly opaque future by creating a new product: planning on-demand transit routes.

The first on-demand transit planning software


I created a new feature for Remix dedicated to on-demand routes so transit planners can create routes using emerging technology with little effort.

Compare on-demand routes with existing service


Transit planners constantly compare the parameters between old and new routes. My prototype design allows planners to see how an on-demand route compares with existing service, before committing to creating a new line.
