CrewPro for Short Lines is a right-sized solution.

We’ve learned a thing or two about saving railroads money in the last 30 years. There is no reason Short Lines shouldn’t share in those savings.

PST’s reputation is built on running railroads well. We don’t specialize in doing one thing well, we know how to make everything work well, together. That’s how railroads save money. ~ Seenu Chundru, President, PST

Thirty years of deep railroad knowledge and processes merged with online accessibility is the hallmark of this software modernization for the Railroad industry. There is a reason 6 out of 7 Class 1 railroads use PST Crew Management software. Now, there are even more reasons to use it moving forward.

It’s about time Short Lines got the power of significant Dispatching savings larger roads had for years.

Modern Interface

From what you see on-screen, to what happens behind the scenes, CrewPro Short Line uses the latest knowledge in User Interfaces and computer programming. And, we’ve wrapped the necessities of Crew Management into proven, workflow enhancing layouts.


You aren’t stuck with what we’ve set up. Part of a modern User Interface is the ability to let you customize how it works. Display what you need to see and make CrewPro even more efficient for how you do business. It’s not about us, it’s about you and what works best.


Shortlines have specific needs: HOS, Tie-up, Pool Management, Worklists and FRA auditing/certification functions. But suppose you want a little more later on. Activate our additional railroad business modules later on, and capture those efficiencies when the time is right for your railroad.

Served from the Cloud

Our CrewPro Short Line crew management software requires no additional computer hardware, no IT department expansion. Basically, it’s business-as-usual, only better.

Once upon a time, the computer horsepower and data-driven abilities of CrewPro meant only Class I railroads could afford the benefits this solution brings. But now, we’re hosting CrewPro with a highly secure, well-developed cloud provider.

What does this mean? It means you get all of the benefits with none of the overhead.

It’s also available exclusively by subscription. No software license, no capital expenditure.

CrewPro Software solution for Crew scheduling


We built the tool. You become the craftsman.

No additional IT staff needed. Just the people that know your business.

CrewPro eliminates the need for connecting Excel Spreadsheets, whiteboards and reams of paper and Post-it notes.

  • Have all employee data immediately available without having to leave CrewPro
  • Visibility into rest, certifications, crafts and more lets you schedule faster and safer
  • Be ready for FRA visits with all records at your fingertips
  • There’s more, but you’re starting to get the idea…

And that’s just scratching the surface.


Smart Short Lines don’t have time for dumb software.

So, we made things fast, simple and smart.


New Screens and Smart Info – Modern, best-practices interfaces present and reflow information in ways that save significant time and money. No hunting and pecking around multiple windows.

Predictive Search – Looking for something? All search boxes instantaneously display results as you type. But, as you type additional letters or numbers, the results immediately eliminate anything that doesn’t match. Finding routes, trains or employees has never been easier



Built to grow. Add only what you need.

You don’t need a thousand options or bloated software. But, you might want to optimize some other business needs in your operation. CrewPro will continue to gain more abilities which can be added as modules to your subscription plan.

The nice part is, you don’t need to do it right away. You can always add wanted or new features later – easily. The nice part is, there will be no software installs, no updating and hoping things work. We take care of that for you, behind the scenes, invisibly.

It doesn’t get much better than that. 


We're glad you're here. We look forward to hearing from you.
