LOW-DENSITY AREAS

LA SAIRE TAD, Demand-Responsive Transport service in Le Cotentin

With a surface area of almost 1,440 km², Le Cotentin urban area is the second largest in France, and is mainly made up of rural and sparsely populated areas. The La Saire DRT service has been set up by Padam Mobility, in collaboration with the local operator Zephir (Keolis), in order to facilitate travel from the outskirts to the outskirts and access to Cherbourg-en-Cotentin town centre from the outlying suburbs.

 Experimented for 6 months, the La Saire DRT service was a great success, especially among young people under 18 who represented the largest share of users.

La Saire TAD
With Demand-Responsive Transport, we intend to start stretching the links between the Cherbourg conurbation and the outlying suburbs and thus alleviate the mobility problems in sparsely populated areas.
