Vehicle and Crew Scheduling
Blocking and runcutting for better operations and lower costs
Optibus uses advanced optimization algorithms and machine learning to help the world’s leading transit providers better run mass-transportation.
Our disruptive technology drives some of the most complex and large-scale transit operations worldwide, improving quality of service, efficiency, and streamlining operations. We plan and schedule the movements of every driver and vehicle, discover the best option and reduce costs by up to 15%.
Optibus crew and vehicle optimizations run in seconds to minutes, not hours or days. As a result, you can run multiple scenarios and choose the best ones. You can always check results using the constantly updated business results created by Optibus. This is how our customers save up to 15% of operating costs.
The ability to reflect rules and constraints (such as relief vehicles, break preferences and more) means that the resulting schedules are high quality, in terms of results (as well as quality daily driver duties). You can also take advantage of Optibus recommendations and warnings when you use our interactive manual editing.
Mobility is going through massive changes, driven by technology. This webinar discussed the changes over the past few years, which made an impact on public transportation – both technological and behavioral.
