The concept of large-scale Demand-Responsive-Transport (DRT) Definition and recommendations


The special features of France as regards the organisation of transport mean that DRT is only very rarely organised on a large scale but tends rather to be divided up into small services on the model of administrative subdivisions. Organising large-scale demand-responsive transport would make it possible to make savings.
This study comes within an international setting that paves the way for future European co-operation on this subject.

Année d'élaboration :


Origine (géographique, historique, économique, sociale…) :

“Large-scale” demand-responsive transport has not been defined in detail for the time being, although work on large-scale DRT has been carried out in Europe. The aim was to isolate large-scale DRT from other forms of DRT and to propose a definition and a method for defining it. The idea is also to show that the definition of large-scale DRT is very strongly influenced by selection criteria.
