Demand-Responsive Transport & Payment Solution
Urbanization has inevitably created peripheral areas in specific regions and left people living there without public transport access, because it wouldn’t be economically reasonable for operators to provide the service in the area without significant demand.
The solution for these areas is Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT). DRT solution will noticeably improve the quality of life for people whose mobility needs are currently unmet by providing flexibility and accessibility, while allowing transport service providers to operate with maximum efficiency.
For the public transport operator, the on-demand service helps to increase efficiency by dispatching the vehicle with right seating capacity. It is also an obligation of local authorities to provide transport service for people unable to independently use or access public transport, because of their health condition. Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) helps to relieve these problems by providing a service, which is not dependent on a fixed bus route or schedule.
Demand-Responsive Transport offers a solution to the problems inherent in rural areas where urbanization has left people without public transport access. The Authority and/or Operator receives financial gain due to optimized scheduling and vehicle capacity.
