DEMAND RESPONSIVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT FOR AUSTRALIA: 2. MEETING THE NEEDS

A conceptual discussion of the parameters of demand responsive public transport (DRPT) in a companion paper is elaborated here by the examination of a series of case studies. These case studies are of demand responsive transport services that have operated or are still operating in Australia.While they reveal the trade-off between flexibility and efficiency in DRPT, they also suggest that in certain circumstances alternative and emerging technology (particularly in relation to vehicle size and communications)can reduce the compromises involved.
