Managing off-peak hours is a textbook case for transport authorities and their operators. How can they ensure service continuity in a context of low demand while optimising operations? Achieving this is a 360° victory: lower costs for the community, social and professional inclusion for users, increased attractiveness of the territory, etc.
Demand-Responsive Transport is an ideal solution for maintaining public transit service during off-peak hours. It eliminates the need to run empty vehicles along an underused line during off-peak hours. For users, it guarantees safe travel at night, for example. It is also the possibility of accepting a job with shifted or night-time hours. Demand-Responsive Transport transforms an organisational difficulty into a source of opportunities, such as the creation of new services that better meet the needs of off-peak hours.
