Public transit, on-demand.

Remix

2018
Remix is revolutionizing transportation around the world, currently it’s a web-hosted application for planning public transit systems. However, public transit may not function like it does today. 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.

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.

How can transit planners create future on-demand routes in 2020?

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.
