Demand Responsive Transport (DaRT) is an alternative way of providing access to key services in rural areas.
DaRT services differ from bus services in that they are flexible and may divert on and off route to collect and drop off passengers within their operating area.
DaRT is NOT a taxi service, as there must be enough volume of passengers with similar itineraries in order to make the journeys viable.
Most DaRT work is former bus routes and group bookings but unlike a large bus, DaRT only needs three or four passengers to make a group booking. When not operating a timetable bus route or group booking, vehicles may be available for individual runs where no alternative transport is available.
DaRT operates between date and time depends on which service. Unlike a conventional bus, you need to first register as a customer. You need to book your seat on a journey at least 3 working days in advance of travel.
