Tight budgets and increased eligibility are making it difficult for UK councils to maintain home-to-school transport services. Digital demand-responsive transport (DDRT) offers a new way to drive efficiencies — but while cutting costs is necessary, the student experience is of paramount importance. That’s why some DDRT software offers personalised support for students by creating detailed student profiles, a parent app for real-time visibility, and modifications for passenger assistants.
