Easy Rides First

Designed for the smallest rural systems with fewer than 10 routes and vehicles and operating on a single workstation. Easy Rides First has all the features you’ll need in an affordable, easy to use package, but without the features you won’t need, saving you money.

Easy Rides First is fully upgradeable to Easy Rides when you need additional functionality. Easy Rides First incorporates many features previously available only in very expensive software. To help you save money, training is conducted remotely via GoToMeeting. Easy Rides First is only installed on a single workstation, eliminating the need for a server, and networking, and simplifying installation and setup costs.
