MaaS: The role of Demand-Responsive Transport in peri-urban and rural areas
Find out how integrating DRT into a MaaS solution in sparsely populated areas would be a paradigm shift in terms of equal access to mobility.
In the UK, population groups dependent on public transport in rural and peri-urban areas often have difficulty accessing essential services, such as work, education and health care:
• 57 per cent of the working-age population live in areas with low public transport access to jobs
• Four out of 10 job seekers could not get a job due to a lack of transport.
For six years, Padam Mobility has been working with transport operators and local authorities to ensure that shared mobility is integrated in less densely populated areas. Padam Mobility committed to offering everyone a connected, real-time transportation service, including the most vulnerable populations.
Considering the abundance of studies and analysis on Mobility-as-a-Service focused on densely populated areas, Padam Mobility felt that it was essential to take an extra step towards the periphery with its latest publication: MaaS in peri-urban and rural areas: What role for Demand-Responsive Transport?
Download the new Padam Mobility White Paper and find out how integrating Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) into a more comprehensive MaaS solution would be a real paradigm shift in terms of equal access to mobility services.
