For the first time in history, over half of the world’s population lives in a city, which means we need to rethink how people get around and access transportation. Launching Bridj in Boston was our first step in rethinking how to connect you better to your city, and the success we’ve had so far has enabled us to take our next big step today.
Here are the exciting changes that we’re rolling out:
The Bridj App
The app is currently available for download on iOS and Android. With the the new Bridj app, you tell us where you want to go, select the trip that best meets your needs, purchase in-app and you’re on your way. The app will also allow you to track your Bridj in real time and you can book trips days or minutes in advance. Check out the awesome video we made below!
We’re taking our first step towards a more dynamic system. You’re no longer choosing to ride on a specific route. The app will find a Bridj that meets your needs and (in advance of booking) you’ll get directions to the pick-up location and exactly where we will drop you off. Our promise is that we’ll be able to get you anywhere in this service area with no more than a twelve minute walk on either end of the trip.
In conjunction with the app release, we’ll start offering evening service, something many of you have been greatly looking forward to these past few months. Evening service will run from 4pm to 7pm. As always, morning service runs from 7am to 10am.
Our own fleet
Starting today, we’ll begin moving to customized vehicles built specifically with you (our user) in mind. Each new Bridj has WiFi, premium seating, and automatic doors. This enables you to spend your time on Bridj however you choose. Be productive, relax, or meet a new friend.
This is the next stage of our beta. Bridj is a huge, exciting experiment, which means we’ll continue to develop and add new features. We’re so happy you’re a part of this experience with us, and we can’t wait for you to try the new Bridj. As always, if you have any questions feel free to email email@example.com. Your feedback is incredibly important to us.
