Demand Responsive Transport trial in Logan

What is DRT?

Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) is a new type of shared transport that provides you with an alternative to taxis or similar services when buses and trains aren’t available.

It is a pre-booked service that adapts to customer demand. It changes its routes and vehicles to suit the number of passengers who want to travel.

Unlike a traditional bus that runs along a set route, DRT sends out smaller vehicles, like sedans or mini vans, to pick up several passengers and take them to selected destinations when requested.

DRT is designed to give you another option for travelling around your local area.

DRT Community Consultation

Throughout the planning and design of the DRT trial, we went out into the Logan community to find out what was important to you.

This consultation took place from mid-May to early July 2017 and was an opportunity for you to have your say on the trial and provide feedback which we could use in the final design of the service.
