- June 10: Integrating on demand transport in urban transport networks
Expanding the reach of public transport with first and last mile services using automated vehiclesGeographically flexible on-demand public transport services become viable if automated vehicles can be used. Operating at much lower cost than conventional buses, small self-driving vehicles have the potential to be used for the first and last mile and thereby expand the reach of public transport.Now what makes a first/last mile service? It is sufficient to operate a flexible fleet of self-driving vehicles alongside a fixed-route network? Arguably not. If not jointly managed with the existing scheduled services, the on-demand services will compete with the former, leading to lower occupancy in the regular buses and more traffic on the main axes through the city. For the on-demand services to become complementary, an elaborate set of rules for journey planning and pricing needs to be set up. AMoTech, 100% subsidiary of Trapeze, is working on this problem.
