Update on IAC’s InterAgency Transportation Solution (IATS):
It’s March 2018; Spring is in sight! Even the far-sighted here at IATS are in agreement. Yes, Spring is still a little blurry, it remains chilly out there, but, they’re putting out Spring plants at the local Crest hardware in Williamsburg!
What’s that got to do with getting the buses to program on time? To instill better communication skills at all levels at our bus companies? Optimism!
With that proclamation, IAC Executive staff and IATS operational staff met with the IATS Management group on Tuesday, March 6th. We looked at data regarding bus performance for the first six months of the 2017-20 Transportation contract and, with that backdrop, laid out a summation of how IATS operational staff hold the bus vendors accountable day-to-day. The data is in, and bus vendor performance is trending up! We still have some more work to do, but contract performance is better than it was one year ago.
