Transit Scheduling

Transit Scheduling

Efficient, reliable transit service is heavily dependent on effective transit scheduling. TMD’s full-service scheduling practice utilizes both Hastus™ and Trapeze™ scheduling software (ours or yours) to develop accurate timetables and efficiently schedule vehicles and operators, while optimizing costs by incorporating sound operating practices and local work rules. We effectively balance these internal requirements with the needs of transit customers, such as good connectivity between routes to minimize transfer wait times. Our scheduling team brings both expert software skills and, perhaps more importantly, firsthand operating experience and the knowledge necessary for consistent positive outcomes for our clients, especially when addressing complicated contractual provisions and collective bargaining issues. With a commitment to developing the internal scheduling capacity of our clients, TMD’s team also provides on-site and remote training in basic and advanced scheduling techniques, as well as additional staff support when internal staff levels are insufficient or vacant, and/or the workload becomes excessive.
