Trial of on-demand bus service launches in London

View original

Transport for London has announced that a 12-month trial of on-demand bus service has launched in Sutton. Using mobile and predictive technology, the scheme is aimed at identifying whether flexible demand responsible transport services can play a role in encouraging public transport use. This is part of the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy to increase public transport use, walking and cycling to 80% of journeys by 2041. Sutton was chosen as the site for trial as it has high car use and has been difficult to service with traditional public transport. The on-demand buses are fully accessible, can seat up to 14 people and have free USB charging and Wi-Fi onboard. The buses will operate in a defined area, rather than following a linear route.

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
