PRLog - Dec. 21, 2012 - BOGOTA, Colombia -- The auditoriums of the BOGOTÁ CHAMBER OF COMMERCE's magnificent building in the Salitre Business Center were the location for the “SIBRT and Sustainable Transportation Workshop” as part of the “Cities and Climate Change” event. This event was attended by figures, experts and governments from across the Latin America region, who shared their ideas and expertise on how to improve public mass transit in order to decrease emissions and pollution in order to halt climate change.

At one of the sessions sponsored by SIBRT and EMBARQ, the General Managers of TRANSMILENIO (Bogotá), PROTRANSPORTE (Lima), TRANSMETRO (Barranquilla), METROLÍNEA (Bucaramanga), METROCALI (Cali) and METROPLUS (Medellín) were in attendance, together with the Development Manager of TRANSANTIAGO (Chile). There, the Assistant Manager of GOAL SYSTEMS’ Latin America offices, Angel Diaz, took the opportunity to discuss how optimization systems are ideal as a basic tool for resource planning and how they do not conflict with other systems for significantly reducing emissions of CO2 and highly polluting waste.

More specifically, GOAL SYSTEMS focuses on three different indicators that an optimization system can improve, which are directly related to climate change:

1.       Decreasing the number of buses that need to be used. This decrease translates into fewer emissions, less pollution and greater availability of financial resources.

2.       Decreasing the distances that must be traveled without passengers. A decrease of up to 30% means fewer emissions, decreased use of fossil fuels and fewer residual contaminants (oil, tires, etc.).

3.       Meeting passenger demand with available resources. In many of the cases discussed, the managers mentioned that they had reached a maximum number of buses that would be difficult to surpass. Having an optimization tool makes it possible to use the available resources to meet growing demand. Meeting demand means satisfying passengers who do not opt for individual transportation, thus meeting the goal of preventing climate change.

With its products, GOAL SYSTEMS provides today's mass transit managers with the tools they need to have clean systems that are environmentally respectful.

Thus, on November 15-16, GOAL SYSTEMS sponsored the International Conference on Best Practices and Sustainable Mobility organized by the Latin American Integrated and BRT Systems Association, SIBRT and by MetroCali.
