In this four-part series, TransPar discusses the student housing and off-campus transportation market, and what property management professionals should consider when vetting an experienced transportation management organization to help mitigate risk and provide the reliable service their residents expect.
When you are engaging a transportation management organization (TMO), two critical considerations are its ability to plan proactively and execute agilely. Proactive planning ensures organizational alignment across the service, and agile execution implies not only effectively working the plan but also reacting adeptly when improvisation is necessary.
Identifying a partner that has the resources, relationships, and industry expertise to ensure service continuity during disruptive events (i.e., vehicle breakdowns, driver turnover, adverse weather, or unexpected traffic or campus events) will give your organization the freedom that it needs to focus on its core business and drive its bottom line. Turn your biggest pain point into your most valuable amenity.
POINTS TO CONSIDER
