Users with the Shotl Passenger App on their smartphones are able to submit a trip request in a matter of seconds.
After selecting the number of passengers and typing in the addresses of origin and destination, the app provides an accurate pick-up time and the estimated time arrival.
In order to make the service more expedient, riders are informed with walking directions towards a pick-up point and from the drop-off point to their final destination.
The Driver’s App guides the minibus to retrieve the passengers at a pick-up point and expresses them to the final drop-off point.
All routes are fully dynamic and adjusted in real time, based on traffic and demand. The Shotl algorithms are made to ensure the maximum punctuality on every ride.
Shotl provides effective pooled transportation, hence all rides are shared with other passengers heading to a similar destination or with common directions.
Fleet and operation managers have full access to a central console to supervise demand fluctuations, manage vehicle availability, and check the status of every trip.
The Shotl Management Module allows managers to add or subtract new virtual stops, resize the extent of the operational area of service, or open and close street availability.
Our aim is to optimize the routes of every vehicle while maximizing their load factor in order to free the city from traffic by carrying multiple people at once.
Passengers can request a trip in real-time or book it in advance. All rides can be scheduled at once for 7 days onwards with just two clicks. Transport operators can also provide a complimentary ‘hot line’ phone support.
The raw data Shotl collects belongs to our customers, and can be used it as a valuable input for sustainable mobility plans. That is top origins and destinations, demand fluctuations or average waiting and onboard times.
Should you delay travelers on board to pick-up a new passenger or offer her/him a ride for later? The Shotl routing algorithm can be parameterized to weight different constraints and balance the system performance.
The Shotl platform can be integrated with the current public transport ticketing system as an extended dynamic fleet, or as a premium layer of demand responsive services. Fares are established by the transport authority.
