Description
The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) Future Transport Zone (FTZ) is a £28m innovation programme aiming to improve the integration of public transport across the West of England. This notice specifically focusses on the DDRT project, which is part of the FTZ programme. 

Our vision for DDRT is to offer an alternative additional public transport mode, especially in areas where traditional modes do not currently present as a viable option or service. It is our intention to procure a partner to deliver a bespoke DDRT solution for the region, especially looking at locations in North Bristol and South Gloucester, (the Northern Arc/ Southmead/ Avonmouth and Severnside). 

What is a DDRT service: 
• DDRT is Dynamic, demand, responsive transport service 
• It is formed of a technology platform, which is formed of a customer app/ driver app/ back office and customer support and a fleet of vehicles. 
• Allows customers to book via an app/ website/ call centre for transport from a pre agreed pick up/ drop off. 
• Vehicles are typically smaller buses or minibus or shared taxis 
• We will prescribe operating zones, and the services can run within these boundaries. 
• Users book onto the service and technology platform routes accordingly, to pick up overs or connect to other transport services.
