RUCUS (RUN CUTTING AND SCHEDULING) IMPLEMENTATION MANUAL

The Run Cutting and Scheduling (RUCUS) package is a set of computer programs designed to assist transit properties in developing headway sheets, scheduling vehicles, and making driver work assignments. RUCUS has been extensively field-tested and is currently supporting the scheduling activities at a number of properties. The package, which is now available to the transit industry (through the Transportations Systems Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts) includes detailed program documentation, descriptions of the required input data, output reports and messages, and the program source code. This handbook provides guidance in implementing the RUCUS systems at the user's property, outlining such steps as obtaining and organizing the necessary resources, constructing the initial data base, and using the RUCUS programs. This handbook is to be used as an adjunct to existing documentation which defines in detail the execution of the system programs.
