As one line permit may be linked to several different routes (e.g. on working days and weekends the route of one line can be different) or different travel products, logistical information is managed at three levels:
- Line – A line in Turnit Ride means a permit to provide passenger transportation services on certain route or routes. This level is meant for managing general information about the line – line number, line name, the expiry of line permit, refunding rules, etc.
- Line template – This is where route-specific data is managed – bus stops on the route, time of arrival, and departure, pre-assigned inventory, etc. The primary purpose of Line and Line template is to manage default values of data that are needed to generate actual trips.
- Trip – based on line template, actual departures on specified line with a specific date and time are generated. All sales transactions, including passenger-specific data will be assigned to specific trips, so it is easy to react to any trip-related issues, last-minute dispatching and fare change. Each trip (departure) can be individually managed. For example adding a stop on Mondays and Fridays or limiting the number of seats offered for sale in certain segments.
