Transportation Network (TNC) Company Planning
Transportation Network Company (TNC) loosely refers to on demand transportation provided by private providers. The business model is to provide a relatively immediate transportation solution via smart phone or app, and employs a private auto in making that trip.
Public transit providers have been exploring that type of service delivery solution to expand their service areas, or to provide service in area where the demand for traditional public transit service isn't high enough to warrant a traditional fixed route bus.
Josephine County is exploring options on how to deploy a similar service model along side the current transit services. This idea could be used to expand service, provide service later in the evening or more efficiently provide service in areas of lower demand.
This is an ongoing planning effort and the preliminary results are expected in the Summer of 2018.
