Transit Software and Provider


Drivers gain the advantage of an automatically updated, detailed manifest, while dispatchers monitor driver and vehicle activity in real-time. Audible notifications and color-coding emphasize changes to keep drivers aware of manifest updates without taking their eyes off the road.  Dispatchers can send instant messages to one driver, multiple drivers or all drivers and a selection of preset ("canned) messages give drivers the opportunity to respond via the quick and easy virtual keyboard. This saves time and provides a safer approach to communications.
