Montenbus, Demand-Responsive Transport service in Mont-Blanc
Montenbus is a rural and mountain Demand-Responsive Transport service deployed in the Urban Community of the Mont Blanc region. It currently serves 10 communes.
The Urban Community of the Mont Blanc region, which until then had only regional fixed routes, set up this service to compensate for the lack of existing mobility solutions on its territory. The Montenbus service complements rather than competes with the existing fixed lines.
The service is based on a free floating configuration. Taking into account the specific journey times in mountainous areas is an essential parameter to guarantee the smooth running of the service. In addition, the service’s timetable varies according to the season in order to adapt to the flow of tourists during the winter season.
