Finding on-demand transit solutions for low-density areas

As populations grow in small cities and towns, so does the need for reliable, cost-effective and efficient public transit systems. Traditional public transit models used in larger cities don’t always serve the needs of residents in lower-density areas, so Civil Engineering professor Bilal Farooq is working to find solutions.
