What is dial a ride?
A door-to-door DRT transport service
Dial a ride (which is also known as ‘demand responsive transport’), is a valuable transport service for those who cannot use public transport or find it difficult to travel. Dial a ride provides a responsive solution to passenger needs and, in most cases, providing a door to door transport service.
The challenge for dial a ride service providers, is ensuring that passengers can be picked up realistically in the right time frames whilst optimising the existing route of the journey which helps reduce your carbon footprint, mileage and fuel costs.
Many operate these services manually and estimate how long each leg of the journey should take. However, this is far from ideal and often means the whole journey picture is not considered and you end up with passengers being given inaccurate pickup times and drivers waiting for long periods of time.
Unfortunately, as more passengers are added to existing journeys the route gets more complicated and services and routes can become ‘fractured’ and chaotic. When you factor in changing passengers’ requirements and increased demand for services managing this becomes incredibly stressful.
Road XS does things differently. We automate the process and treat people as people, not parcels. Most transport software treat people as parcels, not knowing or concerned about how long a person spends in a vehicle, so long as the route is optimised. But people aren’t parcels.
Road XS provides the only automated dial a ride software with automated pickup windows and drop off times ensuring passengers do not spend any longer than they need to whilst in transit. This means all the transport team need to do is add and remove passengers from a journey and the route gets magically calculated with realistic and accurate pickup windows.
Road XS also ensures that arrival times are considered a priority. This enables you to combine journeys so that passengers who are travelling on the service to attend a medical appointment are not late, compared to those travelling on the same journey just to go to the shops.
Road XS is the only transport software which offers a fully optimised experience.
