Transport / Transportation / Shipping / Bus services
Catalan term or phrase: serveis discrecionals
The dictionary says "TRANSP Dit del servei de transport col·lectiu que no fa viatges regulars". Not sure what we call these in English... irregular services? non-standard services?

"... atorgant les corresponents autoritzacions administratives per a la prestació de serveis discrecionals... La major part d'aquests serveis són els destinats a cobrir la demanda dels centres docents i laborals, és a dir, serveis discrecionals amb cobrament per cotxe complet. Altres serveis especials es caracteritzen per ser prestats amb finalitats turística o d'oci i se'ls atorguen autoritzacions amb cobrament individual"

Thank you.

Not that basic. It's the typical kind of doubt. Have a nice day!

agree  Berni Armstrong: Never worry about asking Kudos questions. Sometimes the dictionary has a term which is useful, but a colleague may know the preferred term in the industry.
