DEMAND RESPONSIVE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING GUIDELINES (1976)
Demand Responsive Transportation (DRT) is a type of transit operation providing 'on-demand,' door-to-door service with small buses. More than forty DRT services are now operating in the U.S. These systems provide the data base for a set of relationships which can be used for planning and design of new DRT systems. In addition, the experience of active operators emphasizes a number of important steps in developing successful DRT services.
