RideCo-Logo| Case Study


On-demand cloud-based paratransit and microtransit

RideCo, offers on-demand transit software designed to empower agencies to deliver equitable and accessible transportation solutions for all community members, regardless of their destination. Their cutting-edge software enhances operational efficiency and boosts service productivity.



As RideCo's services gained traction and recognition in the market, they were met with a wave of evolving client needs and expectations. Many clients, aiming to ensure top-tier service and security for their users, showed a proactive interest in understanding RideCo's standards. A significant manifestation of this trust-based collaboration was the clients' desire to see certifications, a clear testament to RideCo's unwavering commitment to a solid security program.

While this newfound interest from clients was a positive sign of RideCo's growing prominence, it came with its set of intricacies. Clients came from varied backgrounds and sectors, leading to a spectrum of certification requests and varied compliance benchmarks.

This wasn’t just about fulfilling a list of requirements. It was about understanding the underlying ethos of each certification, ensuring alignment with RideCo's values, and integrating them without compromising on service quality or efficiency.

The broader challenge also encompassed a deeper dive into the governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) management within their central program. This initiative went beyond mere policy refinement. It involved navigating the rich landscape of technical details, dissecting them, and applying them strategically. Ensuring immediate tasks were dealt with efficiently while keeping an eye on the broader horizon of long-term strategic goals was a delicate balancing act.
