ORT selects RouteMatch Software solution

Posted on October 1, 2009

Ozark Regional Transit (ORT) has selected RouteMatch Software for its Fixed Route ITS technologies. ORT will integrate RouteMatch CA, RouteMatch's fixed route management, schedule-adherence and dispatching solution to its current RouteMatch TS software system, used for demand response transit services.

Located in Northwest Ark., ORT is an urban public transit system servicing the cities of Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville, operating 28 vehicles for both fixed-route and demand response service covering a 120 square mile service.

With RouteMatch's automated system, ORT can use its fixed route and/or paratransit vehicles to provide services on a given day or shift, using just one screen and one technology infrastructure.

The new system will also integrate with on-vehicle mobile data computers and an automated vehicle location solution. Through one integrated ITS technology solution, ORT dispatchers can communicate with and track all vehicles and "read" multiple in-vehicle Fixed Route peripheral devices including automated passenger counters, automated voice annunciators and vehicle destination signs.
