Our business at www.trail2rail.com is not the usual operation for the transportation industry. Our plan is for all reservations to be made and paid for on line before any vehicle rolls.
This will apply to both fixed route and on demand vehicles.
Now and in the past, transportation companies would purchase, house and insure the vehicles, employ drivers, mechanics and dispatchers all before a single passenger rides.
It is difficult for us to arrive at the very first figure needed when writing a business plan. Namely the ratio of dividing the overhead by unit sale. Our goal is to drive the standard overhead in the transportation industry way below the current model.
We cannot utilize the "plan-in-a-box" template because our model is way outside the box!
We invite anyone to look at us at the above URL or at yavavan.com who may want to join us or just help advise us on formulating a "Business Plan" for the business we plan.
