Another day at the office? Heading into sixth form? A spot of retail therapy or enjoying a coffee with friends?
Demand Responsive Transport will arrive in Tees Valley from 24th February 2020.
How does Demand Responsive Transport work?
Using the all-new Tees Flex app (iOS and Android), customers will be able to hail a vehicle directly from their smartphone. The app's clever algorithms will then enable multiple passengers to seamlessly share the vehicle.
The technology directs passengers to a nearby 'virtual bus stop' (within a short walking distance) for their pick-up and drop-off points, allowing for quick and efficient shared trips - without lengthy detours, taking customers where they like, when they like!
Your journey begins with the Tees Flex app!
- Download the Tees Flex app (from 24/02/20)
- Create your account
- Register your credit or debit card, or pay via PayPal
All set-up? You're ready to go!
- Step 1 - Select your pick-up point from one of the ‘virtual bus stops’ - whichever is closest to you!
- Step 2 - Choose your desired destination
- Step 3 - Select the time that's best for you!
- Step 4 - Your Tees Flex bus will be with you in a flash
