New paratransit routing software launched

Posted on May 19, 2010

Transit Computing Inc. launched Route Coordinator, new software for paratransit routing and trip coordination. Route Coordinator makes it easier for communities of all sizes to schedule and manage transportation and riders.

"With an aging population, the need for paratransit services is going to grow. Route Coordinator will allow transits offices to better manage and maintain trips for the elderly and disabled," says Bill Fawcett, director of marketing at Transit Computing. "Route Coordinator can save any small or medium-sized paratransit office time, manpower and money."

Where it often takes half a day to schedule and manage a few dozen riders using traditional methods like Post-it notes and spreadsheets, Route Coordinator makes scheduling, recording, reimbursement scheduling and report filing easier to manage, and in less time.

Before adopting Route Coordinator, a small rural community County Department of Aging (Wis.) provided 30 or 40 trips a day in a few vans. It took all day to manage this load. Now, by using Route Coordinator, they comfortably support twice as many trips per day in five or six vans in less time, growing both the client and rider base.

Route Coordinator software is available at a cost even the smallest paratransit provider can afford. There is even a massively discounted price for very small locations.
