Tdtims is changing
TDTIMS is Changing

  • In the past we have focused most on

    SAFETY & EFFICIENCY


Tdtims is changing1
TDTIMS is Changing

  • On the other end of the spectrum is

    PERSONALIZED SERVICE


Service indicators give a way to look at what kind of service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

SERVICE INDICATORS


Tdtims
TDTIMS service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • TDTIMS is the series of reports generated from your data, to be submitted along with a copy of your data by November 1 each year to be used in the funding process for your district

  • The data must be current and in order to be used in the funding process

  • The data is compared to the TD-2 riders submitted by your district in October


Tdtims reporting
TDTIMS Reporting service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • Don’t use old instructions that may be in your office! The reports are changing this year!

  • Instructions will be available on the web when the new reports are ready and installed

    http://www.ncbussafety.org/TIMSqrg.html

  • Remember: a copy of your data is part of TDTIMS submission (ELTzip)


Check your data
Check Your Data service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • You should WILL review your data the same way we will because YOU will be filing it in.

  • If we get data from you that doesn’t meet the minimum for the funding formula, we know that you know it doesn’t, and you won’t be surprised that you get a letter indicating that fact.


What happens to your tdtims data reports
What Happens to Your TDTIMS Data & Reports? service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • TIMS staff verify and summarize the data.

  • If it meets state criteria (90% of student count represented in TIMS as valid transported students) AND the data represents the current years operation – it is usable for the funding formula.

  • Data and reports submitted to funding formula

  • No February submission required


Tdtims potential problems
TDTIMS service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service Potential Problems

  • Your data does not meet 90% of TD2/TD2R figures for the November reporting

  • TIMS Staff has an indication that the data does not represent current operation

    So…

  • February data submission is required


Problem areas total students
Problem Areas - Total Students service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • The key figure will be in the report output from 1TDTIMS and located in your REP folder as QMF_ride.txt

  • This figure must be at least 90% of your TD2R student count total

  • TD2 count x .90 = minimum number you must have in order for your data to be used by funding formula


Transported students
Transported Students service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • To be considered VALID transported students for TDTIMS they must meet the following criteria:

    • They must be ‘located’ ~ To ensure accurate locations, as a part of the UPSTU process, ADSCAN should have been run to locate the students

      • Review and fix as many problems as possible on your ADSCAN error report (report is generated and located in the EMU error files as ADSCAN.ERR)


Transported students1
Transported Students service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • They must be assigned to an AM or PM stop ~ stops need to be on runs and the runs need to be on a route

    • Failure for the stop to be fully assigned all the way to the route level will cause the student to not be considered ‘valid’


Total miles
Total Miles service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • In addition to student data, TDTIMS checks total bus miles

  • These figures can be extremely accurate if TIMS data matches your actual operation

  • Call your project leader if you feel you have a problem with the mileage data


Total number of buses
Total Number of Buses service you are providing and the ability to compare your level of service with other sites statewide. This also helps to see a balance of the Safety/Efficiency vs. Service

  • Should include all Regular and Special Needs buses

  • NOT contracted buses, only yellow buses

  • Locally funded trips should NOT be included in this report.
