Student Ridership

Student Ridership represents the power of technology to deliver a flexible and intuitive solution with benefits for parents, drivers and administrators. Best of all, it provides an extra layer of safety by preventing students from departing at the wrong stop.

Student ridership can provide the following:

  • Understanding bus’s reliability
  • Detailed reporting helps simplify Medicaid reimbursement
  • Identify trends faster and resolve issues quickly
  • Real-Time alerts to parents as their child board and depart the bus
