ITS System ROI Paratransit Reduced radio traffic due to the ability to add and remove customers from the manifest without a long radio call. Real-time status information, dispatch does not have to wait for a driver to tell them they are running late as dispatch now sees when pickups and drop offs happen in real time. The ability to better utilize Route Match reports. Previously only pull out / pull in times and mileage were entered, now there is times and mileage for every Customer. Map to functionality with turn by turn navigation replaces drivers using personal GPS units Fixed Route On-Time Performance Increased Text messages have replaced radio calls for driver breaks AVL map assists with transfer issues without radio calls Far more detailed schedule adherence data Stop level data on where passenger loading and alighting occurs.
