The main objective of Demand-Repsonsive Transport is to offer streamlined transport, so that supply is intelligently adapted to demand.DRT is presented as an alternative to the private car or taxi, with the aim of meeting different requirements with optimised shared vehicles. DRT allows real savings, while offering better access to mobility and having a favourable impact on the environment.
DRT solutions are adapted to many sectors and tend to develop more and more.
Several types of clients use the services of Padam Mobility:
Demand-Responsive Transport is a very flexible mode of transport. It adapts perfectly to the different publics and to the different use cases:
Demand-Repsonsive Transport is flexible and can operate in different configurations: in line (fixed or virtual) or in zonal (free-floating, multi-zones or feeder)
The fixed route configuration is based on predefined stops served in a predictable order and at predictable times. The passenger is thus informed in advance and can anticipate his ride.
The virtual line configuration consists of a regular line where only the reserved stops are served. In this way, theitinerary can be followed in its entirety, or partially.
The electron-free configuration allows pick-up the passenger, regardless of his location, to drop off in a specific area without any time constraints. This configuration is to be preferred in the case of large territories where transport services are insufficient or too expensive.
The multi-zone configuration allows the service of several zones in a precise order. If the sequence of these zones is fixed, theitinerary within each zone is flexible and optimized.
The DRT zonal feeder service allows passengers to be picked up at a specific stop and dropped off in another zone, and vice versa. This type of line respects a schedule constraint, with fixed times that can be consulted in advance. It is a configuration to be favored for station/airport shuttles, or for school transportation.
The objective of any good DRT software is to facilitate the use of the service while simplifying its management and providing real-time, reliable and complete information. It must be able to facilitate the users' experience in their booking and travel, the drivers' experience in their service, and the operators' one in their operation management.
As a true management and monitoring tool, the DRT software must make it easy to compile statistics to adapt the solutions to the needs and continuously improve service.
The principle of the DRT software is very simple. It takes the form of a a suite of booking interfaces for users (application, website, interface for call center), a navigation interface for drivers and a management interface for operators.
Padam Mobility's DRT solutions offer many advantages, especially when compared to traditional market players:
Padam Mobility DRT software enables the implementation of DRT services that complement existing fixed networks without competing with them. With "multi-territories" feature, it makes it possible to manage several zones on the same territory, or even several territories at the same time . Furthermore, it can be integrated with most of the payment systems on the market, making it easy to set up and accessible.Contact us
Faced with the multiplication of travel modes and the difficulty of modulating each of them to obtain an optimised itinerary, MaaS is emerging as an innovative concept.
In a short period of time, the rise of digitalisation in transportation has profoundly changed everyone's practices. This is true for passenger transportation, where connected mobility is a priority for everyone in order to facilitate travel.
In cities, people's travel patterns have changed significantly and are still changing. New forms of urban mobility are appearing, impacting the world from an economic, social and environmental point of view.
