ATAP, an urban and interurban public transportation operator in Pordenone, Italy, is now using the Scheduling module from Optibus, an AI software platform that powers mass transportation operations, to optimize their crew, vehicle, and relief car schedules.


Optimizing crew, vehicle, and relief car schedules

ATAP wanted a software solution with powerful optimization capabilities to enhance the 84 urban and interurban routes ATAP operates in and around Pordenone. Backed by Optibus’ advanced optimization algorithms and easy-to-use digital tools, ATAP can optimize multiple types of schedules, including driver duties, service vehicles, and relief cars. Optimizing schedules simultaneously on one platform enhances both ATAP’s vehicle blocks and driver duties, resulting in more efficient operations and better schedules, in less time and at lower costs. 


Faster scheduling processes thanks to the cloud

Thanks to the power of Optibus’ algorithms and cloud-native solution, ATAP can now run optimizations in minutes, instead of hours. ATAP can also run multiple scenarios simultaneously, assess the impact of each scenario on their operation and the transportation network, and pick the best option possible. The result is better decisions, faster, and time saved.

Optibus’ Scheduling Module uses advanced optimization algorithms and machine learning to run crew and vehicle optimizations in minutes.

Another unique advantage of Optibus is that the platform is automatically and instantly updated with new features and product releases, keeping the Optibus platform up-to-date and in line with the evolution of technology and AI. 

“Optibus’ easy-to-use digital tools put speed and powerful optimization capabilities straight into ATAP’s hands,” said Francesco Golia, Regional Director Southern Europe at Optibus. “We are proud to work with a company as innovative as ATAP. Their vote of confidence in Optibus is further proof that our platform represents one of the most advanced solutions available in the market today.”

“ATAP has innovation in its DNA, so it only makes sense to work with a company as innovative as Optibus,” said Narciso Gaspardo, President and CEO of ATAP. “Optibus’ platform is one of the best available in the market. Its optimization capabilities, speed, flexibility, and user-friendly interface allow us to reduce costs and recover fundamental resources to continue improving services.”
