During the COVID-19 pandemic, Israeli’s public transportation decreased service in response to low ridership. However, essential workers, including bankers, still needed to get to work.
Bank Hapoalim wanted to offer its employees who rely on public transit easy access to get to six bank branches in the center and north of the country.
They needed a complete solution offering that was easy to use, exclusive to the bank employees, and could be up-and-running as soon as possible.
Bank Hapoalim chose Moovit’s On-Demand solution to enable their employees to get to work safely and comfortably. Through a white label app, employees register with their work email and select their bank branch in the custom on-demand service available only to them. Following registration, employees receive an SMS with the pickup time and location for each day they’ve requested service.
The service allows employees to order pre-scheduled rides up to a week in advance. The solution calculates the time required to pick up and drop off passengers for a true real-time experience.
Within a week, the service was running smoothly with nearly 100 users subscribed to the service.
Ventura has been searching for the right technology partners over the last three years and after investigating trials in other cities, we were comfortable with Moovit’s global reach and willingness to understand and cater to our passenger’s needs.
SMART is taking a big step by modernizing the Dial-a-Ride service… to offer a quick, convenient, and more reliable way to ride. We are always looking for ways to improve service, meet the increasing demand for transit as well as address the challenges the pandemic has imposed. Partnering with Moovit and offering the On-Demand feature to riders allows us to address all of these issues with one application, while also developing new and innovative ways to deliver better services with our existing resources.
