[ba.market.misc] Scheduling/routing people movement algorithm/application

I would like to locate a program or an algorithm that would help
solve the following problem:
A local organization that works with the developmentally disabled
provides transportation for 400 people every day.  This results
in 70,000 miles driven every month.  The people are taken to twenty
(20) locations according to a schedule of supported services.  The
names and addresses are in a constant state of change, as are the   
destinations for each day's activities.  One person is currently 
handling the weekly scheduling task.  The number one need is to 
find the scheduling...algorithm.  
They have INFORMIX installed.
