Tuesday, September 24, 2019 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Rostering can be a painful process. You’ve got a complex combination of duties and trips, and you need to allocate them while keeping to hard-and-fast constraints like rest time and days off – mixed in with efforts to reduce costs and meet driver requests. And, you might have different groups of drivers that each have separate requirements. To top it all off, it takes so long to put a roster together that you often just have one shot to get it right. That doesn’t have to be the case, though.

During this webinar, we’ll show you how rostering the smart way can help you maximize your time, cut costs, and keep your drivers happy.

Attendees will learn:

  • What happens when powerful optimization algorithms automatically make sure you haven’t violated custom rules and preferences (overtime, guarantee time, etc.)
  • The benefits of generating multiple roster scenarios instead of just one
  • How roster groups make it easy to accommodate sets of drivers with different requirements (full-time and part-time, different start times, union agreements, etc.)
  • How allocating standby duties can make rostering more efficient

Originally aired: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

The new FTA requirements state that transit agencies create and follow a comprehensive Safety Management System. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, also known as MAP-21, includes new transportation regulations that will impact training requirements as soon as this year. However, only parts of the new FMCSA regulations apply to transit agencies.

During this on-demand webinar, safety expert Jeff Cassell discusses how you can ensure you’re in compliance with the new FTA regulations, and how following these regulations will improve driver behavior and help your agency to create a safety culture. While most agencies’ main goal is to establish a safety culture, few actually know what it is or how to do it. This session teaches you the exact steps to create and implement your Safety Management System so that you cultivate and maintain a strong safety culture that lasts.
