TMD helped RATP Dev update the schedules for the D.C. Circulator. TMD used Optibus™ scheduling software to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, reliability, and compliance of the D.C. Circulator service, vehicle, and crew schedules. TMD also developed runcutting strategies that reduced operator pay and personnel requirements while meeting DDOT’s service delivery conditions and RATP’s collective bargaining agreement. TMD’s work also assessed the current utilization of ZEBs in route services and developed alternative operating schedule/vehicle blocking and operator runcut strategies that better addressed range issues while reducing disruptions to the customer timetables.
