Liftango and May Mobility partner to deliver dynamic on-demand shared transport solutions with autonomous vehicles

The collaboration will leverage Liftango’s shared mobility solutions and May Mobility’s autonomous vehicle fleet to optimize shared transit across cities and corporate campuses in the Americas, Europe and the Middle East

ANN ARBOR, MI (October 25, 2023)Liftango, a global leader in shared mobility solutions, and May Mobility, a leader in the development and deployment of autonomous vehicle (AV) technology, announced today a partnership to create innovative demand-responsive transportation solutions through AV microtransit. Combining their strengths, the companies will collaborate on demand-responsive scheduling and routing optimization for autonomous fleets, aiming to make a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals by creating a safe, inclusive transit system that caters to each community’s specific needs.

The partnership will enable vehicles equipped with May Mobility’s autonomous driving technology to operate seamlessly between demand-responsive and fixed-route services, through Liftango’s technology platform. By leveraging the technology and expertise of both Liftango and May Mobility, transit agencies and commercial campuses will be able to deliver an enhanced, more reliable transportation experience. The partnership will also make it easier to expand transport services to those who currently don’t have access due to mobility issues, are located in a rural location or are subject to reduced services in their area.

“Liftango’s demand-responsive services allow us to grow our business and further scale our operating areas and we look forward to collaborating on a variety of deployments and use cases,” said Manik Dhar, Chief Commercial Officer for May Mobility. “Working together, we can create and implement innovative AV solutions for urban and rural communities, delivering turnkey AV deployments that are optimized for each location.”

“May Mobility is a global technology leader in autonomous mobility and we’re proud to partner with them to establish and scale AV deployments,” said Kevin Orr, CEO and Co-Founder of Liftango. “Integrated mobility solutions that include AVs are key to expanding access to affordable, efficient, and equitable transportation for all and our partnership with May Mobility is an important next step in our mission to bring safe, equitable and accessible transportation solutions to communities around the world.”

Liftango and May Mobility share a vision for developing smart and transformative transportation solutions. By making autonomous vehicles demand-responsive, optimally routed, and shared by multiple passengers, they can reach their full potential. The efficient utilization of autonomous vehicles can relieve congestion, improve environmental sustainability, and reduce operating costs for transit providers while expanding transportation options for consumers.
