Ford Launching Dynamic Shuttle Ride-Sharing Service in Dearborn
Ford is launching its new Dynamic Shuttle on-demand service for employees working at its headquarters in Dearborn. Dynamic Shuttle, which was announced at the beginning of 2015 as one of the components of the automaker’s ongoing Smart Mobility plan, will allow employees to commute to and from the office with ease.

“Dynamic Shuttle is a major step forward on Ford’s mobility journey, which is designed to lead the company to develop truly innovative and disruptive ideas for diminishing traffic congestion and making public travel more convenient and accessible,” said Ken Washington, vice president, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering.
The Dynamic Shuttle fleet will consist of four Ford Transit vehicles for the time being, with likely expansion taking place down the line as a means to increase passenger volume. Rides in one of the Dynamic Shuttle Transit vans or wagons can be reserved through a smartphone app that will become available in early 2016.
Each of the four Transit shuttles is capable of carrying between six to eight passenger, and vehicles include amenities such as Wi-Fi hotspot, USB charging for all passengers, and personal storage space.
Should the program prove successful, Ford may very well extend Dynamic Shuttle into other locations across the United States.
