Specifications include, but are not limited to:Demand-responsive transportation includes current and emerging mobility options including, but not limited to, services that may be (1) traditional general public, human service, taxi, and private providers; (2) emerging single- and shared-use options such as bike- and vehicle-sharing, and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs); and (3) scheduled in advance and on demand. These mobility options have been growing and, for decades, communities have been pursuing their improvement.Demand-responsive services are often characterized by complex, multiparty engagement and interactions for each trip. Other industries have experienced the benefits of sharing data to improve everyday business practices. In the transit industry, the General Transit Feed Specifications (GTFS) has already shown the benefits of sharing fixed-route transit data. The lack of common specifications for transactional data for demand-responsive transportation (see Special Note B) has negatively impacted business practices and the cost, quality, and availability of these services, to the detriment of communities and customers. The development of transactional data specifications will enable the transportation industry to adapt to current technology and continue to innovate.
