Client: Ayuntamiento de Pontevedra

Partners: Seteiotivas S.Coop.Galega

We analysed the viability and sustainability of the operation of a collective transport service on demand, using low capacity vehicles, which provided service in the peri-urban area of Pontevedra.

The study was complemented by a field work that analysed the average daily traffic and the rotation of license plates in parking lots, as well as personal and telephone surveys that determined the origin-destination matrices and the preferences of users of public transport and private vehicles.

The administrative and legal organization options and the regulations for the start-up of the service were reviewed, taking into account both the Galician and Spanish regulations in addition to the European directives required in spending programs that depend on financing from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
