What the Passenger App Is
The Passenger App of the Quickride Shuttles platform is a web-based application where customers can view the real-time status of their shuttle rides, create their own shuttle rides, and rate their shuttle rides.
How Customers Access the Passenger App
Customers get access to the Passenger App via a link in an initial text/ SMS message that is automatically sent when their ride is created in the Command Center. They receive the link again in additional texts/ SMS messages that are sent when the shuttle starts driving to pick them up and when the shuttle arrives at their pickup location. Customers click on the link and the Passenger App opens on whatever default internet browser they have installed on their smartphone. They do not need to download anything to access the app.
