Abstract

The growing need to move for different reasons, pushes the average user to compare and select modes of transport that meet both economic requirements and the possibility of connection to the areas to be reached. Mobility has suffered a major setback due to the COVID-19 and in particular the local public transport has experienced severe discomfort caused by the need to maintain social distancing. In areas with low demand for transport, where often the local transport services do not connect to peripheral areas, it is considered appropriate to evaluate the possibility of implementing forms of transport on demand and in particular the DRT (Demand Responsive Transport). The present work shows a statistical analysis related to a small urban center of Sicily, characterized by weak transport demand, comparing the results obtained by the dissemination of a survey to two groups of the population, inhabitants and commuters. It was possible to understand a hypothetical propensity to DRT and which parameters influence these choices the most. The results lay the basis for future research and help the local administration to revise the urban traffic plan. REFER
