What we learned l.jpg
What We Learned Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Communications infrastructure is different for each project

  • Need a “local champion” at each project site

  • Scheduling algorithms and report writing are entirely separate products!


What we ll do differently l.jpg
What We’ll Do Differently Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Communications

    • Web-based interface (Explorer or Firefox)

    • Real-time mobile data transmission and automatic vehicle location using existing cellular technology (e.g. Blackberry, I Phone)


What we ll do differently9 l.jpg
What We’ll Do Differently Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Expectations have changed over the last 10 years

  • “Test” organizations are fully engaged in the project


What we ll do differently10 l.jpg
What We’ll Do Differently Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Scheduling and reporting are treated as two separate products


Multiple agency scheduling l.jpg
Multiple Agency Scheduling Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Customized data entry screens

  • “Trust relationship” from read only to full access

  • View and change trips scheduled by another agency


Constituent access l.jpg
Constituent Access Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • End users may check on status of existing rides

  • End users may cancel rides


Rider information l.jpg
Rider Information Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Standard info, plus

    • Unique identification number

    • Eligibility by service

    • Multiple funding sources, etc.

  • Access based on the trust relationship


Scheduling l.jpg
Scheduling Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Batch and single insert scheduling

  • Multi-Modal scheduling

  • User defined parameters

    • Unique for each partner

  • Reoptimization

  • Suggest solutions that may include mixing with fixed route


Reporting l.jpg
Reporting Scheduling and Automatic Vehicle Location Deployment

  • Built on a relational database

  • Common reports available

  • User must be able to access database using commercially available report writer

  • Customize for specific DHS needs
