AnnotationA common type of dial-a-bus service is one which links a service area to a few major trip attractions. This is known as a "many-to-few" type of operation, and as such it normally has no fixed routes, bus stops or timetables. This report provides estimates of the the distances to be travelled to connect different numbers of collection or set-down points in service areas of different sizes and shapes. The information allows the round-trip time, the required vehicle capacity and hence the productivity of the dial-a-bus service to be estimated for an assumed level of demand. (RH).
