HASTUS SYSTEM IMPLEMENTATION : CALGARY TRANSIT'S EXPERIENCE . PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1989 ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE ROADS AND TRANSPORTATION ASSOCIATION OF CANADA, CALGARY, ALBERTA, SEPTEMBER 17-21, 1989

Runcutting or operator scheduling is the process of cutting and recombining vehicle schedules into transit operator work assignments. The operator work assignments must conform to the parameters contained within the union collective agreement and cover all scheduled service. To upgrade the computer technology available for scheduling and runcutting, Calgary Transit installed the HASTUS software package. As a result, Calgary Transit staff have been able to produce significant gains in operator/runcut productivity. Currently, operators work an average of 34.10 operating hours per week compared to 32.65 hours per week prior to the installation of HASTUS. The additional 1.45 hours per week translates into an additional 75 hours per operator annually for a total of 50,000 additional hours of service to the public. Without these productivity gains, an additional 32 operators would have been required at a cost of $1.1 million. (TRRL )
