THE ADELAIDE DIAL-A-BUS STUDY

The results of a study of dial-a-bus public transport and of its possible application in metropolitan Adelaide are discussed in this paper. The study involved a review of theoretical research, feasibility studies and demonstration projects conducted overseas. It also included extensive market surveys and investigations into possible applications of dial-a-bus in specific areas in Adelaide. Both many-to-many and many-to-one applications were considered. A field experiment was subsequently conducted in which 12 buses were used to operate a many-to-many service over a large part of the Adelaide metropolitan area. (A) /TRRL/
