Demand Responsive Transport


Demand responsive transport services are an alternative to traditional fixed route services and can take different forms, but broadly they try to reconcile the convenience and flexibility offered by private vehicles or taxis with the efficiency and lower cost and environmental impact of mass public transit. These services may be operated and funded by public bodies, or private companies, or a combination thereof. However, DRT is often challenging to run on a commercial, non-subsidised basis.
