This paper presents the concept of a hybrid multiservice demand-responsive mobility service, to improve productivity and provide safer, reliable transportation in developing countries. The multiservice vehicle is realized by a Mobility Service Provider (MSP). The MSP manages passengers' requests by scheduling ride sharing. Service requests are also met by scheduling delivery of healthcare, internet access and goods delivery close to the customer. A user demand-responsive scheduling system ensures optimum use of a vehicle and delivery of services. A model MSP called Social Services on Wheels introduces vehicles to a community in Dhaka, Bangladesh whose operations are based on requests from the customers. We expect this pilot will provide a comfortable scheduled transit solution that minimizes vehicle idle time to maximize use of the vehicle.
