Trainings and Use Cases

Here are just a few of the topics we will cover at this unique meeting.

How to handle disruptions using CASR features.

MOBILE-ITCS has more than 30 Computer-Aided Service Restoration (CASR) measures and features. These measures were developed to equip ITCS users to efficiently deal with daily disruptions. I will be training dispatchers on how to use some of these tools - like substitute service, online diversions, connection protection and turn-by-turn navigation.

What affects to consider if your agency plans to engage a 100% full Electric fleet.

How will electromobility change your maintenance departments and future staffing, and the necessary depots needed to withstand the industry change? This and other questions affecting your zero emission fleets will be discussed by our e-mobility experts. 

Turning ITCS data into workable service improvements.

The data from INIT’s CAD/AVL system provided the analysis for pinpointing traffic delay areas within the city of Portland. With this information, TriMet recognized a street that was causing major interruptions. By implementing simple steps like a dedicated bus and bike lane and signage, the agency was able to experience a 12% reduction in delays at that location.

Learning the challenges and rewards of implementing electric vehicles.

RTD daily runs their electric fleet on the 1.4 mile, 16th street Mall loop averaging more than 9 million riders annually.  The implementation of electric vehicles came with many challenges. hear how they are adapting and moving forward in this new mobility paradigm.
