UZURV Announces Contract with Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) to Deliver Special Transportation Services.
[Richmond, VA]. – Richmond, Virginia based technology startup UZURV (YOO-zurv) is pleased to announce a pioneering partnership with GRTC to deliver on demand transportation to paratransit, and other ADA qualified customers in Richmond and Henrico County, VA. Beginning August 1, 2017 special transportation customers will be able to schedule “Care-On Demand” service through UZURV giving them greater flexibility and control over the timing, and the type of transportation they need.
GRTC says, “The benefits of this unique partnership to customers include: direct, non-stop service; requesting a trip for same-day service; flexibility to schedule a reservation up to 30 days in advance; freedom to ride solo; ability to bring guests, a Personal Care Assistant (PCA), or a service animal; ability to travel anywhere within the GRTC CARE service area; and the option to request favorite driver(s).” GRTC Press Release
The UZURV technology framework presents a full menu of providers including independent ride-share drivers, taxi services, and paratransit suppliers on one platform. UZURV combines the convenience and affordability of on-demand transportation with the security of a reservation service that allows riders to select drivers and vehicles that match their specific needs. In addition, the UZURV Call Center will open this option to those riders who do not have the use of a smart phone.
GRTC’s CEO David Green says, “Both GRTC and UZURV share a mutual commitment to providing safe, effective, efficient and customer-friendly service. This partnership is also a ‘smart-city’ solution propelling Greater RVA to the forefront of mobility solutions.”
We look forward to working with other municipalities who are looking at ‘smart-city’ solutions. By leveraging the new and growing on-demand transportation resource, UZURV can help cities grow their transportation supply when and where they need it. By combining that resource with a full mobility menu UZURV gives every rider, no matter their needs, the same chance to find affordable, suitable transportation.
