RouteMatch chosen for 8 Ind. transit systems

Posted on June 24, 2010

The Indiana Department of Transportation has selected RouteMatch TS for automated routing, scheduling and coordination in eight transit systems in Indiana.

Boone County Senior Service Inc. coordinated the procurement on behalf of the individual non-urbanized area transit systems in the State of Indiana who have received grant funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. The FTA provided funding to the Indiana Department of Transportation under the authority provided in 49 U.S.C. § 5311.

The procurement was conducted as a cooperative offering a diverse range of software system products, and established a schedule of prices for a complete software package, including all licensing, installation, database conversion, third-party mapping products, training, hosting and one-year warranty costs.

RouteMatch Software will be implementing projects designed for two tiers. In the initial phase of implementation, participating systems that are smaller in scale will be first to receive RouteMatch Software and technology training, as they require basic functionality in the software system.

The second phase of implementation will reach larger service areas that have higher ridership, more peak vehicles, and potentially a greater array of funding and billing sources that must be tracked on a daily basis.
