Learn how real-world agencies use software to plan and schedule their EV fixed route operations. Regardless of whether you plan to add Electric Vehicles a few at a time, or replace the entire fleet, most experts focus on the physical vehicle and infrastructure and the actual day-to-day operation of the EV fleet is forgotten.
Since scheduling EVs is complex, with new preferences and constraints relating to batteries and charging, the use of software should be taken into account. Operators are complaining of the complexity of EV scheduling, saying that their teams have had to go back to paper “as its been so tough to schedule these new buses”.
You will learn:
- Working with a mixed fleet - diesel and EV buses
- What does a 100% EV fleet mean from a scheduling standpoint?
- How can I manage timetable changes or PVR increase/reduction?
- How do I get close to the same level of frequency as non-EV options?
