Halifax Metro Transit adds GIRO software

Posted on December 31, 2009

Halifax's Metro Transit purchased the 2009 version of GIRO HASTUS software for improved overall bus operations. The acquisition is an upgrade from Metro Transit's previous HASTUS installation and provides new tools for day-to-day operations management, efficient work assignment and effective resource allocation.

With services expected to grow by more than 30 percent over the next five years, Metro Transit required the ability to automate manual processes, streamline administrative operations and manage increasingly complex payroll activities and collective agreement regulations.

The newly added Minbus module and Roster Optimize algorithm will help Metro Transit optimize bus schedules and vehicle allocation to ensure cost-effective and efficient routes, schedules, and operator assignment.

The acquisition of the DailyCrew and DailyVehicle modules will help facilitate the management of day-to-day operations including the daily assignment of operator work, which accounts for roughly 30 percent of overall work assignment.
