AICP certified planners use their expertise to help solve complex transit-related problems.
DURHAM, N.C., – May 26, 2021, – TransLoc, a leader in microtransit solutions and part of Ford Mobility’s portfolio*, has introduced its new Planning and Design Services for transit providers. As agencies begin to establish services that will meet their communities’ needs in a post-COVID world, TransLoc’s latest offering provides data-driven guidance and support for transit planning.
Tasked with juggling fluctuating ridership, shifting regulations, and and other competing priorities, transit providers are facing immense pressure to define the future of their public transit systems. Fearing they may make the wrong decision, organizations instead make no decisions—halting progress when the evolving landscape demands agility. By arming themselves with data-driven insights, transit leaders can empower their organizations to make the correct calls, addressing current needs, and set their agencies up for sustainable, scalable success.
TransLoc’s new Planning and Design Service connects transportation experts with certified transit planners who possess the tools and expertise to help transit agencies strategize on fixed-route and on-demand unification. This sets TransLoc’s offering apart from other software-only components available in the market today, and offers agencies a true partner in transit design. Listening to agency goals and community needs, while analyzing key data, such as budget, rider experience, equity, and access to service, a team of certified AICP planners create individualized plans unique to each provider and their communities that reveal innovative solutions to complex problems.
“We are excited about the tremendous value Planning and Design Services will bring to transit providers,” Brett Wheatley, CEO of TransLoc said. “Our team will help agencies reduce costs by optimizing route and service efficiency, enhance rider experience through reduced wait times and increased reliability and safety, and improve equity and access by identifying traditionally underserved communities in the transit service area and ensuring those communities are prioritized for future transit provisions.”
