The RTA, in partnership with AAATA, DDOT, SMART, SEMCOG and the Area Agency on Aging 1B, received a $1,050,000 Michigan Mobility Challenge grant to develop the Southeast Michigan Integrated Platform for Paratransit Services. The project intends to develop a pilot online booking and trip management platform that can create a “one-click” experience for users of AAATA, DDOT and SMART ADA Paratransit services, making scheduling and managing paratransit trips easier for seniors and people with disabilities.
