This webcast summarizes the research findings of the Best Practices in Bus Dispatch study, undertaken to broaden the understanding of operational functions within transit systems and to share optimal practices among transit operations personnel. While the similarities of dispatch functions across all transit agencies are well known, the differences in operating policies, procedures, and functions of dispatch have not been well researched or documented. Very little is known about the differences between transit agencies in terms of the manner in which dispatch is structured, the operational practices and procedures that dispatchers follow, and a catalogue of all dispatch functions. Download a PDF copy of the presentation and the Best Practices in Bus Dispatch final report, produced by the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR).

Presenter: William Morris, CUTR.
