The school bus GPS app offers much more: tools for administrative tasks , field trip solution for easy planning and coordination of trips, a fleet of bus planners to manage a school bus fleet with its own web portal and bus schedules for determining district boundaries, enabling border optimization and capacity analysis schools, as well as financing bus planners for all accounting tasks. The school bus tracking software can monitor the school bus network and create, maintain and optimize routes, inform parents about delays on arrival and much more. Overall, Ospox school bus is a unique integrated solution that covers everything a school needs to monitor and maintain a bus fleet, track vehicles in real time, and provide parents with bus arrival information.
The platform allows drivers to monitor the bus speed, display route details, passenger list, pickup and departure points for each bus ride, presence information and play a sound (e.g. school announcements) to listen to applications with the audio bus system to connect.Drivers can also communicate with parents, receive push notifications, communicate with managers and optimize collection points to save fuel and shorten routes.The platform enables transport managers to monitor the entire bus fleet, plan trips, communicate with drivers, track each bus in the fleet and organize routes.
It includes a school portal, an application for parents and an application for drivers.The school web portal provides detailed route monitoring, parental communication, a main control panel for route and bus management, and a system for sending push notifications to parents in an emergency.The driver application should provide driver route instructions and give them the opportunity to communicate with administrators.
Students tap on an intelligent RFID device at the entrance to the school bus. The latter are often attached to a school bag and are ready for any trip.The school bus driver confirmed the transaction and the student transaction updates the parents with a notification, changes their status in the bus tracking application and updates the school software in real time.The system also allows you to set a full stop rate and online payment for parents.
Thanks to GPS Tracker, parents and school administrators can track buses, track routes, track children getting on and off the school bus, and more.The system can send push notifications to parents if the bus is late and each parent has their own list of buses and routes used by the child.
There are services that provide tracking of the school's GPS fleet, and there are platforms that offer dedicated software for sharing school buses.Although GPS fleet tracking services can also provide school and parent tracking services, there are special platforms that offer location sharing services with many additional features. Specialized school bus tracking platforms can only work if the bus supplier has equipped its buses with GPS tracking devices.
Finally, lush ships with bus software for coach companies that go beyond the school bus tracking market.Charter bus software is more concerned with payroll automation, financial reporting, invoicing and IFTA management than bus and driver tracking, but offers useful features such as driver routes, charter confirmations and powerful planning tools.We appreciate the fact that Ospox provides separate software for bus companies, school districts, and even bus operators. Each software package includes many tools to automate accounting and financial operations.
