This paper provides a novel technique of evaluating routing efficiencies that can result from vehicle-to-passenger (V2P) communication. Examples of public transport vehicles that can leverage the advantages of V2P communication include demand-responsive transit (DRT)�which is a form of flexible transit system often used as a feeder transport for main transit line. Special case has been presented for a grid street network system found predominantly in residential or downtown areas where feeder transit is frequently used. With an assumption of uniform random spatial distribution of passengers over a grid street network, efficiency improvements of as much as 73�98 can be expected with V2P deployment for variable grid network side length of 300�2000 ft, respectively, for higher number of passengers served. These efficiency improvements have been validated through several simulation experiments with a varied number of grid street network systems. © 2020, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
