TfL to examine London DRT as Chariot criticised

South London residents claim that Chariot is contributing to congestion

Transport for London (TfL) has announced that it is to explore the potential of demand responsive transport (DRT) to grow public transport use - despite the Chariot concept having already been strongly criticised by residents of areas that it serves.

TfL has approached bus operators and technology companies. Its DRT trial is set to use minibuses in a part of outer London, supplementing the existing bus network.

Meanwhile, residents in South London claim that the Chariot network has not been properly thought through and that it is contributing to congestion.
