Demand Responsive Transport options

Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) schemes typically operate in local areas where there are few or no conventional bus services.

The exact route and stopping points are usually flexible.  In all cases, journeys must be booked in advance.

Some DRT services are only for specific groups of people in the community, such as the elderly or disabled.
