    relatively rare (see Table 1). Nationwide, only about eight percent of conventional bus service is contracted, the rest being provided by noncompeting public providers.

    Demand Response Service v. Charter ServiceCompared in March 4, Federal Register (Vol. 74, No. 41, pages ) and NTD Reporting (1) Charter service is exclusive, whereas demand response service is the transit provider may mix passengers from a trip sponsor with other demand response passengers on the same trip, then the trip is shared-ride service. Demand-responsive transport, also known as demand-responsive transit (DRT), demand-responsive service, [1] Dial-a-Ride transit (DART) [2] [3] or flexible transport services [4] is a form of shared private transport (or quasi-public) for groups travelling where vehicles alter their routes based on particular transport demand rather than using a fixed route or timetable. [5].

      Quite possibly, personal apps will allow demand-responsive service to replace some low-demand fixed-route buses, which is fine with most transit planners. Those low-ridership buses run mostly for social-service or "equity" reasons, and if there's a more efficient way to do that, I expect many transit experts would be all for it. The Bus Contracting Model (BCM), is a contracting model for public bus services in Singapore.. The scheme was first announced in , then called the Government Contracting Model (GCM). The main benefits touted by the BCM are its responsiveness to changes in ridership and commuter needs, as well as the injection of greater competition within the industry, thereby raising service .
