Trapeze Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary of Operations Management Solution

Hamilton Street Railway first agency to go-live with solution in December 1999

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 23, 2009) - Trapeze Group today announced the 10 year anniversary of the first go-live of its transit operations management software solution -- Trapeze OPS(TM). Hamilton Street Railway was the first agency to go live with the solution back in December 1999. Since then Trapeze OPS has been chosen by dozens of agencies across North America including Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority in Austin, Texas, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, VIA Metropolitan Transit in San Antonio, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, to help manage more than 20,000 drivers.

The Trapeze Operations Management solution is a unique transit software solution helping to streamline frequently performed operational tasks including bidding, dispatching, timekeeping, workforce management and yard management. It can be further enhanced with interactive voice response (IVR) access to work assignments and Web-based access to bidding requests, work assignments, employee information and more.

Stated Jim Dahms - Manager, Transit Planning, Hamilton Street Railway Company, "Hamilton Street Railway has been using the Trapeze product for 10 years to support our fixed route scheduling, bidding, dispatch and timekeeping functions. Since 1999, many new features and technologies have been incorporated into the product and, while we have taken advantage of many of these, we look forward using more of its capabilities,"

"Aside from the software, I've gotten to know many of the staff; the experience they have gained and shared from working with hundreds of transit properties is a great asset.

Over the past decade, there have been a number of critical milestone moments...they've never let me down," added Dahms.

The Trapeze Operations management solution is just one component of the Trapeze transit enterprise offering. The solution is integrated with Trapeze's fixed route scheduling, paratransit software, customer feedback, itinerary planning, ITS and the AssetWorks FleetFocus products. As part of Trapeze's 360 vision, Trapeze OPS can be integrated with a customer's third-party payroll, human resources management systems and other applications and data sources.
