SafeStop school bus tracking app announced that four school districts in Illinois are launching the service: Lake Bluff Elementary School District 65, Lake Forest School District 67, Lake Forest Community High School District 115 and Deerfield School District 109.
Created in 2013, SafeStop allows parents and school officials to securely track the school bus. The app includes a secure registration process, real-time map feature that displays the location of their child’s bus, provides estimated times of arrival at their bus stop, and provides parents with an alerts and messaging center. The messaging center serves as an extra channel of communication that alerts parents about important school news such as delays, closings, early dismissals or upcoming school events and eliminates the need for phone calls to schools or bus depots.
School officials are using the data provided by SafeStop to establish and review Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and provide ridership reports for their transportation system so they can compare, evaluate and optimize their on-time performance.
SafeStop is available in the U.S. and Canada. It is compatible with any transportation provider, any GPS hardware, and any routing software.
