Pick up locations

My first ride was simple to schedule. The only issue I ran into was not knowing where the pick up spot was. I was standing across from HUP and the shuttle was on the Gates side. I ended up running to the other side of the building.

Kindly Call the user if they do not show up

I’m talking on behalf of most students. We will appreciate it if we can have a notification alert that the driver has arrived since you often change wait times to 10 minutes or more after the initial time the user was given. Also for security reasons, kindly call the user to find out why they have not shown up. The user could have ended up in a health dilemma or attacked instead of just leaving them unattended. I believe Penn ride was developed for the security of the Penn community so please let’s tick all the boxes for security.
Thank you.

Wait times have greatly increased with this new app

I have been riding the Penn shuttle five nights per week for over three months at the same time every night. While I like that the new app will pick me up at my exact location on campus and the ability to favorite my route is great, the wait times since the launching of the new app have gone from around 7 minutes to often more than twenty and sometimes even 40 minutes or more. The app gives an arrival time and then keeps pushing it back two and sometimes three times.
