LYON METROPOLIS – TCL À LA DEMANDE
Launched in November 2019 (Mi-Plaine) and February 2020 (Techlid) with Keolis Lyon and Berthelet for SYTRAL (Lyon’s Public Transport Authority), the TCL à la demande networks aim to provide concrete mobility solutions to the less dense areas of the Lyon conurbation: transport of working populations at peak times, first and last miles services from/to the existing network, internal services to isolated areas or areas that are particularly difficult to cover by traditional modes.
Padam Mobility has deployed its smart and dynamic DRT solutions in two areas of the conurbation:
– Mi-Plaine (municipalities of Chassieu, Genas and Saint-Priest), a major employment area with 1,375 companies and 20,000 employees.
– Techlid in February 2020 (municipalities of Collonges au Mont d’Or, Saint Cyr au Mont d’Or, Saint Didier au Mont d’Or, Lissieu, Limonest) combining business and residential areas.
Perfectly integrated into the existing network, thanks to fare integration, two fleets of vehicles, eventually powered by NGV, cross the two territories to complement the existing offer with complete flexibility. The service records up to 5,500 rides per month in all territories combined. In October 2020, the service experimentation was extended until June 2021.
