Real-time School Transport Tracking

SchoolBusTracker® is a transport management software suite with synchronised mobile applications connecting coach operators, parents and bus drivers.

Using GPS tracking technology enables parents and transport managers to locate and monitor the children’s school bus journey on school excursions, sports fixtures and home to school runs.

Our software solution is simple, reliable and provides both assurance and peace of mind to parents and safeguard for schools.

Features

Geolocation

Real time location of school buses. Access information through a user-friendly interface on your smartphone or Tablet.

Alerts

Keep Parents directly informed and notified easily of delays, whilst allowing school’s to manage and control emergency situations efficiently. Allows a driver to privately notify School administrator of Emergency events directly through customised push notifications.

Messages

With SchoolBusTracker, the school can send messages and push notifications directly to the parent app. This helps the school notify parents or guardians of potential delays en route or other relevant information.

Route changes/absence

With SchoolBusTracker, parents can request a change of route or hour of transport service for their child. They can do this simply through their mobile app, knowing this will immediately alert the school administrator.

Booking system

The online and App booking system offers a convenient and practical service for both parents and school Admin, saving both parties time and automating their workload. Upon receipt of a push notification informing parents of an upcoming excursion for instance, parents can instantly book a place for their children and can rest assured that it is reserved for the child without having to either phone or go to the school in person to do so.

Payment platform

Interlinked with the booking system, making payments for school services is now made easier by using a platform that is fast, simple and secure. Available anytime anywhere to instantly process payments for school services such as transport, field trips, school meals. etc…; saving parents a trip to the school to make payments in person. Payment history is stored and can reviewed for future reference.

TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Our system offers the ability to take passenger/student temperature as they board the coach or vehicle.

The system will help guide you to correctly position the thermal camera on the coach.

After the temperature verification, it informs the passenger and driver through a sound alert and message on the driver app.

Both the driver app and the administration panel, will receive an alert immediately if a passenger exceeds the preset temperature limit. The admin panel will also receive an image of the passenger, as they will always register first using NFC or other available methods of registry.

A supervisor app can also receive an alert via a push notification.

Security

  • The application offers complete privacy and a high level of data security.

  • High quality Individual server setup and server balancer on Amazon UK for extra security.

  • Student data is encrypted and unreadable by our software team.

  • All information used within the application is crucial for us to perform an optimum service and therefore we only request the data required.

  • Our CMS (transport management platform) was designed to optimise management controls using automated and easy to use functions, all strictly accessible to authorised personnel.

  • Quarterly system pen and stress training.

  • Each parent App is personalised and independent.

  • Automatic logout.

  • Staff members are GDPR trained.

  • Email verification password generation and dual authentication.

  • A Parent is unable to access other children. Access to their own child is only enabled by restricted and private invitation from the school.

Analytics

Route report:

  • Full analysis of individual and multiple bus journeys.

  • Supervision of timescales, student absences, arrival and departures times.

  • Overseeing the tracking to detect and prevent potential issues within a route.

  • Pinpoints both detected and undetected stops.

  • Planning ahead and implementing safe measures to avoid issues such as, poor network connection encountered during certain stops of the routes or other unplanned scenarios such as a driver skipping certain drop off or pick up stops.

  • Integrated alerts signalling route inconsistencies can also be generated as well as sent via email to the appointed administrators.

  • Identifying which students have used which method of registration – nfc, bio, QR code.

Billing report:

Preparing billing reports for individual students can be tedious and time consuming. The SBT billing report can save you a considerable amount of time by automatically compiling the list of students who used the transport on specific dates as well as calculating the ‘X’ number of times a student travelled on the bus. The billing report can be linked to our parent app and booking online platform for ease of payment. Alternatively, our full booking system and payment platform can also be used by parents wishing to book ad-hoc journeys.

Speed/route tracking report:

Using the breadcrumb technology, the Speed/Route Tracking Report allows transport management to visualise the navigation of a bus on a map. The breadcrumbs help capture the bus’s geolocation in real-time every minute throughout its journey. These breadcrumbs also register the speed the bus was going at, whether the bus was stationary and if so, where and for how long. Data related to speed can be used for monitoring speed limits and making sure the drivers are adhering by the school’s policy on speed limits. These limits can be pre-set on the admin pane. The colour of the breadcrumb also plays a vital role in reading and identifying information displayed.



Time/distance report:

We can provide monthly reports/analytics signalling time and distances done on each route per day with average, peak and low records in graphics display. This can show slower or faster drivers and can also show days with more traffic.

Postcode heat mapping:

The Heat Map assists you to plan and create bus routes in a practical way saving time and costs by eliminating unnecessary stops within a route.

It analyses data by using student pick up and drop off post codes and maps them visually showing the areas where a mass number of students live. Based on this information, a stop can be created strategically to cater for as many students as possible within the area, this therefore increases the catchment area of the school thus increasing the number of pupils at the school.

This procedure can help you reduce transportation costs.



Booking report:

Contain information on fee structures for transport amongst other items, payments made/received and by who, payment balance and the financial status of a specific student in a specific term or an academic year.

With this module, the school finance dept will be able to track all the fees paid by any students at any time including their balances. For proof of payment, the school management can also send an email or push notification to the parent to confirm the fees payments and remaining balances for their students, as well as pending payments.

How it works

A complete and real-time connection between the bus, the school and the guardians/parents to have the location of the buses and kids up-to-date.

Customised & personalised geolocation software with multiple automated features.
