Under direction and guidance from the appropriate Senior Manager and/or Schedule Manager, the incumbent will obtain running time and ridership data from Operations Planning’s ORCA application and other authorized sources, analyze this data, and recommend service revision plans based on the results of the analysis. Once a plan is approved, the incumbent will apply the new trip counts and/or running times to create a new vehicle schedule and, subsequently, a crew schedule (Bus Operator work assignments). The incumbent will then blend the old and new schedules for each day type (Weekday, Saturday, and Sunday), create a roster (including days off and work runs/regular day off relief runs), and produce proposed pick documents for the Union to examine. The final pick documents, incorporating any reasonable requests from the Union such as regular day off swaps between runs, will then be distributed so the Bus Operators may pick their assignments for the next several months. This position also requires occasional field work at various times of the day, including weekends and overnight; attending meetings with the Union and other concerned parties; and preparing reports as needed.
