Demand Responsive Transport
Harnessing technology and innovative service delivery to meet new opportunities for public transport service provision by minibus and shared taxi

Date Of Conference: 12/5/2023

Experiments in demand responsive transport schemes have snowballed in the last four years, thanks to the support of government grants and other public funding, plus market testing by innovative operators.

A real revolution in public transport provision is in prospect. But there are still questions to be answered. How can we best harness the experiences gained from running existing services? What are the economics and where are the demand responsive markets of tomorrow? How do we overcome the barriers to making DRT part of the integrated transport mix, rather than just an add-on? And does DRT have a real future without the extended support of government funding?

This conference will bring together some of the key players in the sector to provide a thought-provoking event that puts under the spotlight both the vision and the practicalities associated with further development of demand responsive service provision.
