Abstract

Paratransit in the Philippines is the backbone of its public transport. Public transport of this type reaches as high as 70% in the national market and within this sector, the Jeepney is predominant. However, due to outdated technology, this paratransit significantly contributes to GHG-emissions. In Europe, paratransit is hardly known. However, it had recently emerged as a supplementary form of traditional public transport and is more identified as Demand Responsive Transport (DRT). Given the significance of paratransit in the Philippines and in Europe, today’s environmental requirement challenges the current policies and requires for the advancement of technological solutions towards sustainability in the transport sector. The paper investigates different kinds of policies, measurements and best practice cases found in Europe and the Philippines that stress the future developments in the paratransit sector. Moreover, this paper shows how each area could learn from the other’s advantages in order to advance sustainable paratransit.
