alternative proposals generated with various financial constraints
Enter Remix. Though the Council began the “Moving Melton” project using Excel and a set of GIS tools, by early 2022, the Remix Planning suite had transformed the process by which their teams could quickly test, iterate, and collaborate on multiple network redesign scenarios. The Council honed four separate proposals — one cost-neutral, and three with varyingly increased investment — and demonstrated their impacts on job access and other key metrics.
They published the interactive maps directly on the “Moving Melton” site, letting the public play with Remix’s data layers and isochrone-based travel-time tool, “Jane,” to better understand the tradeoffs and benefits of each proposed network. All in all, the team estimates that Remix saved them 75% in staff time on their bus network planning tasks.
On a technical level, the amount of work we could do in a month in Excel, we could do in Remix in a week. So that’s a very powerful tool that saves us time and also helps us test and explore a number of different scenarios.”
