Demand Responsive Transport is not “a sticking plaster for bus cuts” according to CBT blog

Bus Users has long argued that Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) is not the answer to all needs. Dick Fowler, a bus campaigner in Lincolnshire, explains why it's failing passengers in his area in a guest blog for Campaign for Better Transport.
