Demand Response Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
Easily connect customers to self serve communications
Your customers can manage their own trips without speaking to a customer service agent through our self serve IVR communication systems. Through TripLine, paratransit riders can confirm and cancel their existing trips, book new trips, and access service information for demand response transit trips. The end result for transit providers is more well-informed riders, increased call center capacity, and improved customer service.
