The EMI program advances emerging technologies, strategies, and innovations in passenger-centric mobility.

The City of Richmond will receive funding to initiate a pilot program that will allow the city to collaborate coordinate microtransit and paratransit riders into shared journeys using a single fleet. The proposed project aims to provide microtransit and paratransit customers with lower wait times, on-time pickups, and quick, convenient trips while reducing the average cost per trip to the City of Richmond.
