Trapeze Bus Stop Management Solution Helps Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority Effectively Collect, Customize and Utilize Bus Stop Information Gathered in the Field

Solution provides surveyors with tools that enable them to update information in the field-and enter it only once

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2009) - Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) has selected the Trapeze Bus Stop Management solution designed to maintain up-to-date inventories of bus stops and amenities along their fixed routes.

This browser-based transit software application, streamlines the process of bus stop management by automating data collection and data transfer into a master bus stop database. With this truly user definable solution, SEPTA can now customize the application to suit their specific needs.

"With the Trapeze Bus Stop Manager installation we can improve the productivity of our in-field stop data collectors through the use of mobile technologies," said Mike Nunzio, IT Project Leader, for SEPTA. "Along with that, our surveyors can start geocoding locations, record and update our amenity lists and attributes, as well as create work orders for maintenance. It also gives us the ability to maintain a high level of data integrity which is critical since the number of downstream systems relying on stop data is ever increasing"

The Trapeze fixed route software solution delivers a GIS Mapping module that provides a visual reference for surveyors enabling them to geocode stop locations precisely. With the Trapeze Bus Stop Management solution, SEPTA can utilize the Work Order Management module to create, update, and monitor work to be performed.

SEPTA is the nation's fifth largest public transportation system, with a vast network of fixed route services including bus, subway/elevated, trackless trolley, light rail, and commuter rail serving a 2,200 square mile service region. SEPTA is also one of the region's largest employers, with a workforce of about 9,000 employees.
