Abstract A system of flexible, customized shift schedules for public transport divers which takes into account the driver's preferences is presented. A computer software application was developed for this purpose and successfully pilot-tested for one year in a public transport company. Drivers' satisfaction as well as improvements in service quality have been observed.
