In July 2021, a new pilot for demand-responsive transport (DRT) was launched in Saaremaa, Estonia. Saaremaa is the first local government in Estonia to develop a DRT service model to offer people more flexible transportation options based on their needs.
Many schoolchildren in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas are living outside the city centre in the surrounding suburbs. However, they often do not attend schools close to home and their commutes by car have an effect on the city environment. In the framework of the international project RESPONSE, Kaunas city municipality has launched a demand-responsive transport pilot to test out an alternative commute for schoolchildren.
