Australia's TransLink taps GIRO program to improve service

Posted on July 2, 2010

TransLink Transit Authority purchased GIRO's HASTUS 2010 software to help improve service reliability and optimize intermodal public transportation in South East Queensland (SEQ), Australia.

In addition, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) has a sub-contract with TransLink to share HASTUS 2010 for its qconnect urban network. The joint venture will bring, under one system, all scheduling of urban bus, train and ferry services provided by TransLink in SEQ and by qconnect in regional Queensland, enabling passengers to access timetables and service information as a one-stop shop for the entire state.

The HASTUS scheduling suite, namely the Vehicle, Crew, CrewOpt, Minbus and Geo modules, will be used to optimize personnel and vehicle resource allocation and for the development of improved transit schedules that ensure timely passenger connections.

TransLink will also use the HASTOP module to produce new timetables for all stops and stations, ensuring a clear and consistent presentation of timetable information.
