Direct Demand Responsive Transport (DDRT)

This project is transforming existing community bus services by giving customers the option to book and track the service through an app. We are working closely with Community Transport Operators and the local community throughout this project.

We are working to procure a back-office system to support the project along with other activities required to launch two pilot projects in Southampton and on the Isle of Wight.

In future, the intention is to make this service available through the Breeze app.
