Rural Mobility: Reconnecting rural areas with Demand-Responsive Transport

Transport provision for rural areas in the UK has shrunk over the past half century. From the beeching cuts to the decline in bus services over more recent history – which is particularly acute in rural areas – there is now a crisis in provision for rural communities. 

The challenges of rural mobility are those of smaller populations, distributed unevenly over greater areas (along with jobs and services) and generally connected by lower capacity and less reliable networks.

  • 43% of people living in rural England live more than 1hour away from a hospital by public transport, compared to just 7% of people in urban areas*
  • 47% of people living in rural England live more than 30 minutes away from a town centre by public transport, compared to just 5% of people in urban areas*
  • People in rural areas travel more kilometres per year than people living in urban areas*
