How do we move people from car to PT?
What are alternative modes or ways to get from A to B
Buses are a feeder
E.g. rotorua - there are clockwise & anti-clockwise buses
What really constitutes demand responsive?
- E.g. VIC, tele buses in the 80s
Roams to other areas when it needed to and people pay a little extra
Pioneer of demand responsive
E.g. Gowanbrae - runs to a patch on a fixed route, then detours within the patch. It carries not many people but it is a place where there needs to be this service
What role do buses play?
E.g. Flexiride service in Woodend and Gisbourne
- Provided an important rail station link. E.g. VIC Yarrawonga - buses replaced taxis near border then they rolled out DRS
- Ptv trial in regional areas with bus and bike integration
- Doesn't always have to be a taxi for last mile, usage is low in Melbourne
