envida launches new digital technology for ride scheduling

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (April 8, 2024) – envida, a trusted transportation provider proudly serving the Pikes Peak region for over 50 years, is thrilled to launch a new ride scheduling software designed to change how riders access and utilize services.

“We are excited to announce the launch of our new ride scheduling software, which will improve both the accessibility and convenience of our services for our community,” said Eric Esch, Director of Transportation and Operations at envida.

The new ride scheduling platform, provided by Ecolane, a leading provider of intelligent web-based transit scheduling software, offers envida a suite of powerful tools and services to manage, monitor, and assess system and ride performance in real-time.

“We are proud to partner with Ecolane, whose innovative software will enhance our ability to provide efficient and reliable transportation services to the community. We are also proud of and would like to recognize our longstanding partnership with Silver Key Senior Services and Fountain Valley Senior Center who we have worked with and shared the same transportation software since 2019,” said Gail Nehls, CEO at envida.

As a part of this launch, envida riders will soon be able to access an on-demand rider app on the app store. Requesting trips through an app means riders can submit their trip information anytime – not just when envida is open.

Through the app, riders will also be able to see the GPS location of their ride, meaning they can track their ride in real-time to determine when their Driver will arrive. Trip reminder notifications will also offer the opportunity for people to cancel their ride if no longer needed.

Computer-aided systems like this allow transit systems to offer more service hours for the same cost because of maximizing vehicle capacities.
