Ecolane, PennDOT Complete Statewide Software Project

Ecolane recently completed a five-year initiative with PennDOT to install cloud-based scheduling and dispatch software for 42 transportation providers at 51 locations throughout Pennsylvania.

Ecolane CEO Steve Ross said, “It is our understanding that statewide software in Pennsylvania is unique in the transit industry, and it is a powerful example of how public and private sectors can come together in a joint effort to enhance the transportation needs of communities on a local, personal level.”

PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said, “We are always looking for ways to use technology to improve transportation services, including public transit. This project is putting valuable tools in the hands of our service partners while enhancing customer service.” The agency explained that using shared scheduling software allows for service coordination and consolidation while ensuring a cohesive customer experience.
