Via announced the launch of Remix Scheduling, which provides transit agencies with a scheduling tool to make decisions for their community’s transit operations.
With Remix Scheduling, transit agencies have a platform that helps with driver schedules and assignments, according to Via's news release. Within minutes, Remix Scheduling proposes multiple scheduling options, so planners can implement the most efficient transit routes and rosters.
Remix Scheduling also helps agencies to comply with new federal regulations for standard data reporting. Starting in 2023, U.S. transit agencies must publish their data in General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format so that it can be accessed publicly, including by apps that help riders with transit planning. Via added that GTFS data improves rider experience because it includes information like schedules and fares, as well as real-time information on vehicle positions and service advisories.
With the launch of Remix Scheduling, Via said its end-to-end TransitTech platform supports every step of the smart transportation planning process.
Benefits of Remix Scheduling:
- Visually intuitive interface: Scheduling beginners and experts alike can master the software in just a few days.
- Help teams make the most informed decisions: Remix Scheduling provides multiple scheduling options and insights, allowing agencies to evaluate the best decision for the riders and drivers in their network.
- One-stop shop: Remix Scheduling brings every step of planning and scheduling into a single platform.
“Remix Scheduling is another step forward in Via’s vision to provide the global transit industry with an end-to-end digital infrastructure to make planning, implementation, and operations more efficient and equitable for all types of communities,” said Nithya Sowrirajan, chief product officer at Via.
The launch is Via’s second major product introduction since it acquired Remix in March 2021.
