Demand responsive - vs. conventional public transportation: A MATSim study about the rural town of Colditz, Germany

Conventional public transportation (CPT) services in rural areas are among others confronted with the accessibility problem and low traveler quantities. Demand responsive transportation (DRT) is an emerging mainstream concept, which aims to offer flexible mobility services to customers and also to solve the aforementioned problems of CPT providers. Studies and simulations about the comparison of CPT and DRT mostly focus on urban areas. Therefore, this paper is a case study of CPT vs. DRT services in the rural town of Colditz: A stop-based and a door-to-door DRT service is analyzed along with a CPT bus line.
