Land use planning is mainly organised around the major transportation lines that link the metropolises. However, crucial travel needs exist and are emerging in areas that are not connected to them. It is often impossible to reach a city centre, even a secondary one, or to get to an employment area or to services other than by car. Sometimes local public transport services exist, but their timetables or service areas are unsuitable because of the specific demand. The latter often do not allow for travel outside the urban area.
Deployed in an intermodal and territorial meshing logic, Demand-Responsive Transport can be integrated in a flexible way within a regional mobility offer by focusing on the most difficult part: the fine service of the users farthest from the structuring lines. For an on-demand mobility offer that is legible and coherent throughout the region, it is entirely possible to unify all the Demand-Responsive Transport services under a single brand and operational management platform.
