INIT to equip Calif. agency with scheduling solution

Posted on April 27, 2011

[IMAGE]welcome35nabi-2.jpg[/IMAGE]INIT, Innovations in Transportation Inc., recently signed a contract with Oxnard, Calif.-based Gold Coast Transit (GCT) to provide an advanced scheduling solution (MOBILE-Plan) for their fixed-route fleet.

The contract calls for 12 workstation licenses and a Google Transit Export feature as well as a rostering, bidding and timekeeping software, (PERDIS) which will assist GCT to efficiently schedule and manage their 100-plus drivers.

INIT’s MOBILE-Plan will optimally design schedules, blocks and runs for GCT’s fixed-route fleet. Presently, GCT operates 39 vehicles with 100 drivers on 23 routes, but the agency expects to double its staff over the next 10 years and expand its fleet to 125 vehicles or more by 2021.

With the new software from INIT, GCT will be able to utilize the flexible tools that will assist the scheduler in developing efficient tables and the powerful optimization algorithm will provide cost saving schedules.
