In March 2016, KCATA began a pilot program to test how on-demand services could integrate into the suite of transportation options available in the Kansas City region. The partnership between Bridj, KCATA and Ford was the first U.S. public-private collaboration bringing together a major U.S. transit system, an automaker and an urban technology company to enhance existing mass transit by providing more mobility options. One year later, the pilot successfully achieved key objectives. The pilot was designed to share our learnings within our community; to inform future project/programs decisions; and to provide a demonstration project to the global community of public transportation providers. Soon, KCATA will announce an all new on-demand service to provide even more flexibility and convenience.
