FlexiBus East Leeds

A project to trial a digitally enabled Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) service in East Leeds

This project is trialling a digitally enabled Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) service in East Leeds. The pilot will see the introduction of low emission, flexible and agile bus service based on demand rather than a traditional fixed route of scheduled bus services.

The pilot is the first trial of digital DRT within West Yorkshire and will be used to evaluate the impact, effectiveness and commercial viability of the DRT service for the wider roll out of the service model in West Yorkshire.

During its trial the FlexiBus service will operate within the zone shown in the above diagram.

This project is funded through the Leeds Public Transport Investment Programme and the Local Transport Plan Integrated Block Programme, and Section 106 contributions.
