1 January 2010. We are looking into the possible usefulness of turning this forum into one that serves both xTransit and the broader category of Share/Transport (http:ww.sharetransport.org). This is your forum and we await with interest your comments, ideas and suggestions for the future.
3 July 2002.This is intended to serve as the Idea Factory for an “old” New Mobility Agenda concept, which you may know in the past as shared taxis, DRT, Demand Responsive Transport, paratransit, ride-sharing, organized hitch-hiking, and the long list goes on. Lacking anything better and in an attempt to pull all this together in a coherent package, we have decided to call this “xTransit”. xTransit - the “third way” of transport in cities: getting people around in road vehicles, smaller than full sized buses, driven by real human beings, dynamically shared with others, and aided by state of the art communications technologies as the only way to offer “car like” mobility in most of our 21st century cities without killing the cities themselves (the old mobility way). And what’s the big difference with these same concepts many of which have been around for decades? It’s the technology, stupid! Stay tuned and get involved. It’s your factory.
