Increase the efficiency of your e-Bus operations planning with MAIOR

Watch this webinar to hear from Italy’s public transport scheduling leader on how to optimise your service planning when you operate electric buses.

Introducing new electric buses to your current fleet in an efficient way requires a powerful software solution that can handle all the needs of the e-buses. Learn why big and small public transport operators around the world are planning their e-bus operations with the MAIOR Suite achieving substantial cost savings. Thanks to the MAIOR Suite’s flexibility and tailorability, the operation planning for urban, suburban, and regional services can truly guarantee to obtain optimised and ready-to-use solutions.

We’ll walk you through three different ‘what-if’ scenarios related to adding electric buses to your fleet, playing with different charging options, like overnight and opportunity, and with different battery characteristics, like capacity, actual consumption, depth of discharge, state of charge, and more. We will also analyse what happens when e-bus fleets manage vehicles that suffered battery degradation, analysing the vehicle autonomy according to each vehicle’s age.

During the webinar, you will discover more about the entire MAIOR’s solution to optimise timetables, running times, vehicle and driver schedules, rosters, drivers’ assignments, daily dispatching, drivers’ portal, workforce management, and contract and performance management.
