Development of a FORTRAN Computer Program to Design School Bus Routes. Final Report.
Ross, Tony A.; And Others
Cooperative Research Project 1605 was concerned with the use of a computer (in the IBM 1620 SPS programing language) in designing school bus routes. This is the concluding report of that project which is here converted into the FORTRAN language. Other objectives were to expand and refine the program, increase its speed, and reduce its costs. The revised program offers school administrators and transportation department heads an effective method of coping with the clerical tasks involved in school bus routing. The FORTRAN program yields the following outputs: bus routes with variable descriptions of pick-up points, times of arrival at, and return to a point, total student riding time, and total bus time, in terms of cost. The program has been thoroughly tested by several school systems. (Author/GO)
