Comprehensive vanpool management with click through NTD reporting
The SmartRideshare platform has a first of a kind vanpool module that allows administrator managed vanpools, self-service vanpools or a combination of both. Commuters are empowered with capabilities that enable finding vanpools, joining vanpools, forming new vanpools. Vanpool drivers and coordinators are empowered to perform operations such as vanpool formation, route changes, role changes and gathering ridership data. The unique vanpool management in the SmartRideshare platform increases efficiencies and reduces administration needs from vanpool administrators. With SmartRideshare, agencies have the unique capability to choose to between using self-service vanpool management and agency administered vanpool management or a combination of both. This approach enables agencies that may have older vanpool management programs to gradually transition to a newer program and then move to a self-service usage.
Commuters also periodically provide ridership information that includes accurate VMT and boarding information this information may be used by administrators to generate click through reports for NTD reporting needs.
Administrators are provided administration tools to perform driver changes, approve new vanpools, track fleet information, maintain audit records and generate reports that oversee the operations of the entire vanpool program. Because the SmartRideshare platform comes built in with incentive management and subsidy management employers and agencies are able to provide vanpool incentives or subsidies directly from the system.
