Nottingham-based community transport operator CT4N Charitable Trust, which provides commercial and contracted bus services across Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, has selected Omnibus cloud solutions for scheduling and depot allocation as part of its digitalisation to boost growth. The operator will replace manual processes with the Omnibus Scheduling Suite to help it produce more efficient timetables and schedules, using OmniDAS for real-time driver and vehicle management and to deliver services safely and legally whilst minimising costs and driver app OmniEngage to improve communication with drivers.

The operator says the move will enable it to realise efficiency savings with secure and flexible cloud solutions as it seeks out fresh commercial opportunities to maintain a host of valuable community services. Commercial Director Nigel Eggleton said: “Our customers rely on us to increase their accessibility and mobility by connecting them to where they need to go. To meet those expectations, we are delighted to partner with Omnibus to drive efficiencies as well as allow us to boost areas that are raising revenue to support the work of the charity.”

Founder of Omnibus Peter Crichton added: “Whether the goal is to improve efficiencies around timetabling, allocation of drivers or produce accurate payroll outputs, we work side-by-side with operators of all sizes and vital community organisations, like CT4N, to enable them to achieve their growth strategies.”
