Demand-Responsive Transport Management

WeDRT uniquely creates and optimises successful, efficient DRT services for businesses, local authorities and government.

WeDRT manage peak demand using a network of local SME operators to flexibly dispatch vehicles. This ensures that vehicle-idle times are kept to a minimum whilst met-demand rates are uniquely high.

Flexible Supply Solution

Since Digital Demand Responsive Transport (DDRT) has risen in popularity, the way these services have been operated has been fundamentally wrong.

Across the UK, we see DDRT services being operated with static supply. This poses a key challenge for DDRT that we see in news articles time and time again. Oversupply, where vehicles and drivers are sat idle and undersupply, where demand outstrips supply during ad hoc events and peaks in ridership – users cannot book a ride, lose faith in the service and go back to the car.

The WeDRT flexible supply solution dramatically reduces oversupply and undersupply, we are the first and only DRT-specific operating solution, built for this new era of operating, where supply reacts to demand.

DDRT Service Case Study: West Midlands

Evidence of our solution working can be seen in the West Midlands, where TfWM awarded us an extension of our pilot contract in 2021, and are now expanding further on our success by pioneering a merge of the Ring and Ride service with our DDRT service. This is an example of our flexible supply solution having benefits to the wider network beyond just DDRT.

In the West Midlands, we have calculated, through actual ride data from Via (our software provider on this project), that the WeDRT solution has reduced the CO2 produced by 12,972 kg (30%) over the last year, whilst saving the council and taxpayer £225k in oversupply fees by enabling a network of local SMEs to facilitate flexible supply. Furthermore, rather than all funds otherwise being allocated to a large incumbent operator, WeDRT has enabled 25% of funds to be distributed to SME local suppliers thus far and this will only increase as our local supplier network grows and as our business scales.

The WeDRT peak demand facilitation equates to 7% of total ridership and without our platform these rides would have to be rejected/ignored by the DRT service due to lack of supply (which would have equated to 2320 riders lost).

To sum up, WeDRT aims to improve public transport links in low density areas, such as rural or peri-urban zones.
