A Research Platform for Singapore

Rapid Road Transport

Overview

Rapid Road Transport (RRT) develops new methodologies for the strategic planning, operations control and road infrastructure developments for the DART system as an innovative and feasibility-based mobility concept. RRT also aims to integrate the DART system into Singapore’s flexible-and fixed-route bus systems, MRT/LRT systems, and emerging shared mobility systems. RRT identifies suitable use cases of the DART system and guarantees a reliable and high quality of service in order to make it preferable for passengers. The long-term objective of RRT is to develop theoretical-, simulation- and empirical-based research to support the DART system as a fully flexible mobility concept.
