RES2021-03: Connecting demand response transit with fixed service transit

Fixed routes associated with Fixed Route Transit (FRT) and high costs associated with Demand Response Transit (DRT), flexible transit services is a viable option that acts as a DRT within a low population density and connect the passengers to the nearest transfer point or stop of FRT. Connecting FRT and DRT together, transit agencies can minimize the overall system cost while maximizing the coverage.
