Why is Metro piloting AOD?

Metro has long heard from Access customers that they have limited or no affordable, accessible, reliable options for taking spontaneous trips or trips that require flexibility. Metro made a commitment to the Access Taskforce in 2018 to deliver a same-day service. The Access On-Demand pilot was designed using information from customer surveys, interviews, literature review, peer agency best practices, and in collaboration with a customer advisory team as well as the Access Paratransit Advisory Committee.
