June 06: The modernisation of depot design and operations
Streamline your bus depot operations: Achieving digitalisation made easyMany bus depots rely on manual methods for scheduling and dispatching, such as physical planning boards or excel spreadsheets. With the increasing adoption of electric buses, it is crucial to transition to digital and automated systems in order to ensure efficiency and availability of staff and vehicles in the long-term.To minimize the effort required for implementation and commissioning, we recommend starting with a basic system such as our PSIeDMS start. It is a foundation for future expansions and customized automation steps, including integration with timetable and duty rosters and a charging management via an integrated interface. The implementation takes place in three steps and can be completed within 8-12 weeks. We give examples of use cases and highlight the advantages of the system to help operators make the transition to digitalization as smoothly and efficiently as possible
