On 27 August 2015, we had academic visitors from South Korea, namely Yong Geol Kim (Kunhwa Engineering & Consulting), Jonghak Han and Bongman Seo (both from the Incheon Development Institute). The purpose of their trip was to investigate the operation of DRT services in Melbourne for the development of possible DRT services in Ganghwa County, Incheon. Currently, some regular bus lines in Ganghwa County are experiencing very low uptake, which sparked their interest of implementing DRT in those low-demand areas away from the city centres. They were particularly interested in the operations of PTV’s Telebus in Lilydale and Flexiride in Yarrawonga. and the government’s approach to handle legal controversies of DRT services. In addition, during the meeting we presented the progress of the project, ideas, and preliminary findings. We will keep in touch with them for future possible collaborations.
