On-Demand Transit System Summons Buses Via An App
Kutsuplus is a minibus service that lets riders select where they want to be picked up and where they want to go.
Kutsuplus, which means “call plus” in Finnish, is an on-demand minibus service run by Helsinki’s public transit authority.
The service lets riders summon a bus with their smartphone and choose a start and end point. The riders can also choose to take a private trip or share a bus with others. A bus can accommodate up to nine passengers. If a rider opts for a shared ride, Kutsuplus uses an algorithm to determine the most direct route for all of the minibus passengers whose destinations may vary.
