“So far there is no clear evidence that new technology makes DRT more efficient from an economic perspective. On the other hand, travelers who use these new systems being tested, are generally very satisfied”, says Fredrik Pettersson-Löfstedt.
Fredrik has, among other things, conducted field work in Sydney to study new technical solutions on-site.
“We lived with young children in Sydney, without access to a car of our own. We found however, that using the on-demand trials was not possibly for us since children under four are not allowed on these buses”, says Fredrik.
