Ecolane a dynamic provider of intelligent web-based transit scheduling software, today announced the release of its new transit scheduling platform, Evolution.  This platform enables transit companies to manage, monitor, and assess system and employee performance in real-time.

“The world is evolving, including the transportation industry to become more autonomous, safer, and more efficient. Manual processes are becoming more automated every single day. Ecolane is part of the movement and positive change that can bridge the gap between scheduling, planning, and billing within organizations,” said Spiro Gjorgjievski, President and Managing Director of Ecolane.

Ecolane’s purpose in updating the user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) to Evolution is to update the legacy software that Ecolane customers use when scheduling and dispatching. Ecolane Evolution strives for excellence in design and functionality to reduce staff time spent booking reservations.

New call-to-action

  1. The "Aging in Place" Effect: Since more seniors than ever before are choosing to "age in place", increases in on-call and appointment-based transportation needs have skyrocketed in the past decade. For rural areas and the transit organizations that service them, this increase raises scheduling havoc and more quickly depletes resources. Adjusting and analyzing routes, demographics and areas of increased need help agencies tackle these issues created, in part, by the silver tsunami.

  2. Dependent Populations: In areas where taxis, trains and other modes of transportation aren't available for residents, rural transit is often the only source of getting around. High demand for customized routes and erratic scheduling as well as expectations of efficiency and effectiveness tend to strain rural transit resources.

In order to manage these issues, resources must be allocated to the most vital areas of the transport system. Making changes to and investing in the communications infrastructure, providing tools and training to dispatch personnel in order to help them plan scheduling and routing, and implementing modern transit technologies to create more efficient response systems are the trends we see for the future.
