    Open Fleets benefits

    Your service, your choice

    Choose the most optimal fleet provider based on criteria important to you or optimize usage of dedicated vs. non-dedicated fleets based on your business goals and rider needs. After all, you know your riders and service best.

    Curb driver shortages

    Fortify your services from the nation-wide challenge of driver shortages by supplementing your dedicated fleets with non-dedicated service providers already available in your community.

    Lower cost-per-trip

    Operate your trips with a closer eye on your bottom line. Use dedicated fleets where it makes sense and dispatch other trips to taxis or TNCs in your region, on-demand to reduce costs.

    Dynamically increase capacity

    Expand service coverage, manage supply during peak periods, optimize the usage of your WAV vehicles, or offer overflow service to meet same-day demand. The use cases are limitless: Open Fleets was built to be flexible and scalable.

    Offer a better passenger experience

    Present to riders a service with less wait times and more spontaneity–bringing autonomy back in their lives at a fraction of the cost.

    Maximum control & visibility

    Dispatch, cancel and have full visibility into the live status of each trip, regardless of which provider, all from a single platform.
