QRoutes has launched the latest version of its Transport Planning tool which is designed to simplify and improve the planning of school and special needs transport. It creates visual map-based results and enables planners to explore what-if scenarios to find new improved routes.
The QRoutes Planner (QRP) can configure the system to take into account a range of variables affecting each route plan. These include board and alight times for different passenger types, and road type speed settings, which can be calibrated from actual journey times.
QRP configures the tool according to vehicle type, cost, time and distance travelled, CO2 emissions and other variables. New features enable users to prioritise which vehicles are included in the routing.
