French term or phrase:rotation
Is there a specific term used in public transport to describe a "rotation", other than journey or service? The transport in question is a sort of futuristic-looking egg-shaped taxi with open sides that operates a shuttle service between the centre of a town and an outlying carpark, and flexible enough to allow passengers to alight where they choose along the way, but I am not sure enough of the routes to go for "round trip". Could a "rotation" here just mean a one way trip or do they mean 200 return/round trips per day?
"Les (name of service) assurent actuellement environ 200 rotations par jour ce qui est considérable et plus de 13 000 rotations ont été effectuées depuis le début de la saison 2008."
Any rapid responses this morning would be much appreciated as my deadline is rapidly approaching! MTIA.
