Demand Responsive Transport as Being Paratransit Mode: Istanbul Modelling

This paper focuses on demand responsive transport (DRT) structure and how to apply it in Istanbul. It describes and classifies paratransit modes, also highlights parameters of DRT systems as a type of paratransit mode. It is emphasized that the key of DRT recommended solution to traffic density based on private cars is satisfying dynamic requests and the other parameters must be organized by focusing dynamic passengers’ mobility. Required economical, technological schemes in addition to structural concepts and labor relations for DRT paratransit system are defined in examples (FAMS, LITRES-2). To apply the DRT systems in metropolitan Istanbul where inefficient paratransit systems and traffic problems exist, significant breakthroughs about the concepts and technology of DRT are needed. Therefore it elaborates appropriate concept, technological development and business connections for Istanbul DRT study.
