(名詞) 提供隨叫隨到、挨家挨戶載客服務的大眾運輸系統。亦寫成 micro-transit 或 micro transit。
Transportation has a Goldilocks problem. At one end, there is “this mode is too solo:” the single traveler in a space-gobbling automobile. At the other, high dollar, we have “this mode is too big:” either high dollar, fixed guide-way public transit or high dollar road expansions. As a country, we’ve institutionalized these two ends, with less interest for the in-between. But thanks to technology, this is changing. We are on the cusp of widespread microtransit.

The first [stream is] on demand public transport initiatives, such as Bridj, a Boston startup facilitating bus rides for commuters, solely based on reservations. A well-known example of the second stream might be Uber, which is using private transportation as a basis for on demand transportation. These two streams together are referred as ‘Microtransit’ and could be seen as a new form of modality, in between private individual and collective public transportation.
