Delivering efficient public transit service requires the effective use of resources. The goal is to deploy just the right amount of vehicles to fulfill the scheduled timetable. On the other hand, timetables have to be robust enough to facilitate the service quality aspired. In addition, duty shifts have to be planned by keeping the drivers’ wishes in mind, in order to make them satisfied employees and good representatives of your transit services.
Planning requires supportive tools to help you increase productivity while keeping your passenger's and driver's needs in mind. MOBILE-PLAN offers a uniquely integrated solution for the creation of timetables, blocks, duties, and data provisioning of your subsequent ITS systems. Several runs with different parameter settings can be started at the same time to present the effects on KPIs and social aspects. Consequently, MOBILE-PLAN allows you to realize a balance between maximum cost savings and employee-friendly duties.
In free markets, the need to build reliable schedules for the bidding process of transit services is important. To produce the call for bids, MOBILE-PERDIS allows you to calculate schedules based on realistic blocks that already consider the requirements of duty rostering. As incoming quotes may differ in their contractual parameters, the overall costs can be calculated based on the blocks, and compared conveniently. In turn, the performed service is reported and will be considered like bonus-malus agreements. Therefore your transit services can be cleared based on the provided service quality.
Organizing your entire staff’s deployment processes can be challenging. INIT’s personnel assignment system, MOBILE-PERDIS, handles it all – from creating rosters to transferring data for payroll accounting. It automatically tailors duty rosters and shift schedules to your given blocks while considering all of your planning strategies. MOBILE-PERDIS allows you to build more efficient work routines.
Streamlining your vehicle dispatching processes can be much simpler with INIT’s depot management system, MOBILE-DMS. The integrated software allows you to easily assign vehicles to blocks and flexibly manage vehicles within your bus yard. This includes the monitoring of the vehicles, their assignment to service or maintenance schedules, as well as the optimized assignment of parking spots to support more efficient pull-outs.
