How Shotl can transform journeys for Seniors

For many elderly people, public transport serves as a lifeline. Adequate transportation services can allow many to continue living as they always have done well into their twilight years. Accessible transportation allows seniors to retain established social ties, providing a sense of freedom and empowerment which is paramount during this stage of life.

“Aging in place” without assistance can be daunting. A lack of flexible mobility can prevent elderly users from accessing essential community services, meeting friends, and perhaps most unfortunately, it can cause them to feel cooped up at home. Effective and efficient access to transportation services is crucial as it prevents senior citizens from feeling isolated. Shotl technology can facilitate the right kind of assistance that seniors need.  

Shotl On-Demand Shuttle is a platform which matches multiple passengers headed in the same direction with a moving vehicle. An easy-to-use App brings mobility closer to people that would have no alternative otherwise.

With no access to a personal car or an inability to drive, life can become dreary and mundane for elderly citizens. 

Flexible mobility allows a freedom to choose which can provide greater access to a richer social life. Shotl has the potential to make an “aging in place” experience feel less isolated and much more fun. All thanks to a convenient system where a simple application can be used to request a ride, allowing you to be picked up right at the corner of your block.

With the idea of “sharing is better than owning” the collective ridership mechanism offered by a fleet of vehicles routed by Shotl eases mobility for seniors and ensures last-mile access to buses, subway networks, and train services. Reducing dependency can help senior citizens to feel the freedom and empowerment of the modern age. 

Shotl is currently providing technology to fleets for assisted rides in collaboration with local nonprofits and dedicated transport operators.
