In addition to the census data that most network-planning tools use, HASTUS leverages data on ridership, OD matrix (Origin-Destination), timetables, and on-time performance to offer valuable insights into how best to restructure networks to maximize ridership.

Crew-schedule digitalization for increased employee satisfaction

The tools in HASTUS for crew-schedule digitalization can help to increase employee satisfaction, reducing absenteeism and improving service quality.

Web-based, digitalized crew-scheduling provides public transport agencies the opportunity to give drivers a greater say in organizing their work schedules, taking their preferences into account while ensuring fairness and respecting regulatory requirements.
