SacRT Partnered with UZURV to Expand Mobility Options for SacRT GO Paratransit Service Customers
As with many other public transit agencies across the country, SacRT has faced COVID-related driver shortages while at the same time, facing increased demand for paratransit service.
To provide more reliable service for SacRT GO customers, SacRT has contracted with UZURV – the Adaptive Transportation Network Company (Adaptive TNC) to quickly expand capacity for SacRT GO riders.
On Tuesday, April 19, 2022, UZURV began supporting up to 25% of SacRT GO trips. UZURV supplemental service is expected to reduce the cost per trip and help attain a higher on-time percentage. SacRT GO uses Ecolane, the scheduling and dispatch software, which supports direct integration with UZURV.
Your SacRT GO trip may be provided by a UZURV independent contracted driver, who will operate a standard passenger vehicle to provide SacRT GO customers door-to-door service.
All UZURV drivers cleared Federal Transit Administration compliant background checks and complete drug and alcohol testing – both pre-service and random testing as required meeting all federal, state, and local requirements for operation as a supplemental service provider for SacRT GO Paratransit Services.
HOW UZURV WORKS:
- SacRT GO customers continue to reserve their ride in advance with SacRT GO.
- SacRT GO dispatchers push trips to UZURV from within the Ecolane system and receive details of the completed trips back into Ecolane.
- Riders are able to track their UZURV vehicle in real-time via the SacRT GO Paratransit Services mobile app.
- The UZURV service will only be used for ambulatory customers.
FIND YOUR UZURV VEHICLE
If you are assigned a UZURV vehicle, it will be marked with a UZURV decal on the front windshield and a SacRT GO magnet on the vehicle door.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
