Progress To Date:

Since the program has been launched in January 2021, incredible momentum has been established with community leaders coming together and technology being deployed for testing!

Transportation providers who have been integrated into the platform and are in the beginning stages of testing the technology before rolling it out to the public in December include:

  • Jump Around Carson (Carson City)
  • RSVP Rural Volunteer Senior Driver Program (Statewide)
  • Get My Ride (Elko)
  • Eureka Senior Center (Eureka)
  • Pleasant Senior Center (Winnemucca)
  • Storey County Senior Center (Virginia City)
  • RTC Washoe (Reno)
  • Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribal Transit (Nixon)
  • Access to Healthcare Network (Reno)
  • Ely Bus (Ely)
  • Neighbor Network of Northern Nevada (Reno)

In addition, Churchill Area Regional Transportation, Numaga Senior Center, and Douglas County Public Transit will be utilizing the platform as additional internal resources become available in 2022.

We also had our first Mobility Leadership Circle meeting on July 29 – bringing together over 50 Nevada transportation providers, advocates, stakeholders, and policy experts at the local and state level to discuss the program, current mobility challenges in the state, and next steps.

The alpha technology has been released in the iOS Apple App and Android Google Play stores for testing by each transportation provider.

Once it is approved by the transportation agencies, it will be then tested by select current passengers. Finally, it will be released to the public for use – anticipated in late November, early December.

Funding:

Funding for this project is made possible by the Federal Transit Administration, (FTA), Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD), and the Nevada Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC).
