Foursquare ITP was selected to help review the effectiveness of the Buckhead Community Improvement District’s Buc Shuttle. We were responsible for developing detailed diagnostic route profiles showing ridership, productivity, and on-time performance of the two Buc Shuttle routes. We also identified opportunities to improve service, including the consideration of innovative service models such as microtransit service, in addition to traditional fixed-route service. Ultimately, microtransit was selected as the preferred service model for the Buc Shuttle, and this app-based demand response service was implemented in April 2020.

Solutions and Outcomes
  • Developed recommendations to replace fixed-route shuttle with more flexible microtransit service.
