SYSTEM ANALYSIS OF AIRPORT DEMAND RESPONSIVE TRANSPORT (DRT)

This report details the study that was conducted of the operation of a service offering door-to-door transportation between Mirabel airport and customer-specified addresses in selected suburban zones in Montreal. The simulated demand responsive transport (DRT) service was requested on demand at the airport and through a booking service at suburban locations. The study investigated the potential demand for such a transportation service, the optimum fleet and vehicle size combination, the economic costs of the system, and the levels of service offered to customers.
