Current ride-hailing tech will shortly be employed to enhance the NYC school bus system. Media claimed this week that Via (the transportation company that provides on-demand ride-sharing in specific areas) will permit its tech to the NYC Department of Education. Via’s method, which pools users from close by regions and makes a well-organized path for drivers to transport them to their location, will now do exactly the same for schools. Students and parents will also be capable of accessing real-time GPS updates and tracking.
Via is presently operating on an application that will be wholly employed by NYC public schools. The app allocates mobile tickets to users, which they can scan so as to access the bus. A Via spokesperson claimed that launch of the app will be started during the upcoming school year. A number of “Uber for kids” ride-hailing firms such as Sheprd and Kango have emerged up in late years, offering parents a much-required choice for transporting kids to school.
