Optimal Scheduling of Buses and Drivers for the Long Distance sector
GoalBus®LD is a software solution aiming to optimally solve the planning of vehicles and drivers in interurban passenger bus transport companies. A software for the management of long distance buses with great versatility and customizing capability, which allows a great deal of parameters to solve any situation affecting the bus fleet and staff. As a result it is possible to solve, in a single model, a wide range of scenarios which may occur in an easy and understandable way.
GoalBus®LD is designed to offer an optimal solution for the planning of long distance bus transport companies in terms of vehicles and drivers. Accordingly, the software for the management of long distance buses efficiently minimizes the cost function of transport planning in which all service quality and economic variables of the company intervene.
GoalBus®LD is, therefore, an information system with which it is possible to perform the scheduling and rostering of the vehicle fleet, drivers and other on-board staff for a defined period. This way, the services corresponding to each type of resource, as well as its assignment and rostering, are generated in a single calculation. The result is the highest degree of optimization and, as a consequence, an important cost saving for the company.
GoalBus®LD is complimented by GoalDriver® (which allows the optimal assignment of vehicles and human resources to services, for the planning of other collectives subject to shifts in transport companies), and by GoalBus® (follow-up and management of the daily operations), giving a complete solution of resource planning in the company, fully integrated with the rest of information systems of the company.
