On demand transport is a new way to think about public transport.
It's a flexible, shared and pre-booked service that connects you to the wider public transport network as well as shopping, healthcare and employment.
On demand services usually operate within a roam zone - a selected area in which the service can pick you up and drop you off - and in some cases also include a fixed route portion of travel.
It's easy to use
- You register and book your trip in advance - each region is slightly different so check the region-specific information below
- We find other people in your area who want to travel at the same time
- We pick you all up near your homes
- Fares are paid on board the service
- We drop you off at your chosen community location, in time to make your appointment or catch your connecting bus, train or tram.
Each on demand service is designed to meet the needs of its community, filling the gap where regular public transport is not available/possible. For this reason, services (travel times, routes, booking systems) vary between regions.
You'll note that many of our on demand services are still in trial. This means the services may change or be removed in the future.
