Bus Tracking

Track your live fleet anywhere in they go, or use our analytics tools to review their past driving behavior. Communicate directly with parents, gardians and school officials by clicking the bus icon on the map and send a pre-made message to all those who signed up for messages related to that bus. View live camera feeds, overlay live weather feeds, create smart geofences, add meaningful map markers, and so much more.

Ridership Tracking

Track your riders using QR Codes that can be printed on just about anything including plain paper or Avery WeatherProof labels that cost less than 2 cents a piece. This provides schools tremendous year over year savings vs RFID cards which cost 10x to 100x more depending on your purchase volume.
Just Added - Active Rider Tracking! Riders no longer need to scan as they board and exit the bus.

Broadcast Messaging

Easily send adhoc or templated messages to specific groups of people interested in knowing what is going on related to a specific transportation topic, such as a late bus.

Recipients choose whether to receive text messages or email notifications. Private topics can be set up and maintained by the Transportation department as well.

Parent App
