BREIZHGO, demand-responsive transport service in Brittany Region

True local public transports, the BreizhGo rural DRT and Paratransit services come to complete the regular public transport offer favouring the use of public transport for daily trips (like commuting) from the municipalities not served yet. In addition, they facilitate access to everyday services (shops, markets, medical centres, town halls, job centres, etc.) reinforcing mobility and social links on the territory, particularly for isolated and/or elderly people, or people without means of transport.

The Paratransit services are operated on a door-to-door or door-to-point (stop) basis. This fleet comprises around 10 vehicles, of which three are shared with the traditional DRT services.

The regional management and booking platform BreizhGo on which they are based aims to provide greater legibility and coherence in the regional on-demand mobility offer, to the benefit of travel in rural areas and in response to a very wide variety of use cases. Today, the platform brings together more than 9 different transport services and operators serving the departments of Ille-et-Vilaine and Morbihan. The other departments of the region are being integrated.
