Chapel Hill Transit (CHT) was able to move from a manual process to an automatic process for its fixed route service's routing and scheduling system.
Challenges: Their employees had to manually create runcut scenarios. This process would take weeks to put together and when edits had to be made, the whole process would have to be redone.
Solutions: CHT installed Trapeze's FX/ Blockbuster, a routing and scheduling system. The system included an advanced runcutting function which reduced the process time from 3-4 weeks to just 2-3 days.
Implementing Trapeze's FX/Blockbuster decreased human errors and runcutting time. CHT also realized annual savings of $200,000.
