Metro de Medellín will also use GOAL SYSTEMS software for the scheduling of its operations

Thanks to the use of GOAL SYSTEMS scheduling, Metro de Medellín will be able to guarantee success with its plans for growth and service quality improvement.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 10, 2012 - SEPTEMBER 2012 — Bogotá, COLOMBIA. Metro de Medellínis the entity that operates and regulates that city's urban transit system, which is made up of the Metro service, the Metrocable aerial cable system, and the Metroplus bus system. In addition to being a high-capacity, urban mass transit system, it also features the country's only subway. Thanks to the use of GOAL SYSTEMS scheduling, Metro de Medellín will be able to guarantee success with its plans for growth and service quality improvement.

Metro de Medellín has grown the city's transport system into one of Colombia's largest and most prestigious. The agency is also breaking new ground on the international level, by pioneering an aerial cable system connected to a metropolitan mass transit system. Metro de Medellín is made up of multiple types of transport, which offer service to most of the city's neighborhoods:

— The Metro service is the country's only suburban train system capable of transporting more than 400,000 passengers each day. It includes two routes: the A line running north-south, and the B line that runs from the downtown area towards the west.
— Metrocable is a cable-based, aerial mass transit system. It has three lines connected to the Metro in northern areas of the city, and transports around 45,000 passengers each day on average.
— Metroplus is a medium-capacity integrated transport system, which began full operation on the Medellín trunk line in December, 2011. Its route runs for 12.5 km, with 21 predetermined stops. Furthermore, the first branch of the pre-trunk Envigado-Itagüí was launched in September.

GoalBus® software was chosen to define the timetables and to schedule vehicles and driver services. This is allowing planning to be performed for both modalities, metro and bus, while also taking the possibilities for trip synchronization between the two transit types into consideration.GoalDriver®software will also be used to assign driver shifts for two separate groups of employees: professional drivers working under a collective labor agreement, and university drivers who only work for the metro and who each work under their own set of individual conditions.

With this acquisition, Metro de Medellín will be able to offer excellent services and service quality in an optimized manner for this inter-modal transport system. For its part, GOAL SYSTEMS has gained a strong position as an international leader, thanks to constant improvements and the creation of software that most specifically targets the scheduling needs of the transit sector.
