This month we chat with Lukas Foljanty, Shared Mobility Enthusiast, Public Transit Geek, and On-Demand Ridepooling Market Expert. He is also one of the most recent additions to the Swvl community and joined at the beginning of March as Principal for Public Sector in Northern Europe.
The local authorities in Montbéliard have taken an important step away from traditional accessibility transport planning and towards 21st-century mobility thanks to Shotl’s new ADAPTIVE app, which enables fairer and more inclusive transport for people with reduced mobility.
Launching a new demand-responsive transit (DRT) system is a big investment, so it’s important to get it right. We take a look at the critical conditions and elements that need to be in place to ensure success.
At Shotl, our experience shows demand-responsive transit (DRT) works best in suburban or rural areas that are underserved by traditional fixed-route/schedule transit. With this in mind, we take a look at three European regions that are leading the way with DRT deployments.
In June 2021, people in the Scottish Highlands were connected by a new and innovative On-Demand Transport system.
Shotl has launched a new operation connecting the neighborhood of Can Sunyer in Castellví de Rosanes with the neighboring town of Sant Andreu de la Barca. Ridership figures show success from day one.
In this post, we look at a few common reasons DRT systems don’t succeed, and how to avoid the pitfalls.
The capital of Portugal, with a population of more than half a million inhabitants, was the chosen location for the deployment of a new Shotl operation in a completely urban setting.
We chat with Adrià Ramirez Papell, Mobility Project Manager at Shotl, to get his insights into how to ensure maximum uptake of demand-responsive transit (DRT) among a user group traditionally considered challenging: the elderly.
2021 has been a year full of news and new deployments. Now, Shotl looks forward to welcoming a new year that promises to be even more exciting, with the promise of growth and great things to come.
