Enhancing Communication and Safety with Real-Time Intelligence

The introduction of real-time intelligence capabilities marks a significant leap forward in student transportation.

Real-time intelligence enables:

  • Easily access information on student bus check-ins and check-offs as well as pick-up and drop-off locations
  • Accurately predict bus arrival times in the event of last-minute changes to planned routes so that parents and schools can be proactively notified
  • Provide accurate turn-by-turn directions to bus drivers on-the-fly when route adjustments have to be made due to an unexpected driver call-out or mechanical issue
