MapmyIndia has especially designed a school bus monitoring solution to provide school administrations with an easy-to-use system to ensure safety of school children, manage buses in real-time and provide parents with peace of mind.

How does it work?

This GPS tracking solution is tailored for the specific requirement to manage school bus fleets, send real-time updates to parents, and monitor bus attendance. With a wide range of SMS and email alerts, the system has robust capabilities to optimize routes, track live locations, give entry and exit alerts, and notifications when a child boards or de-boards the bus.

To illustrate the powerful capabilities of school bus GPS tracking further, this is the journey of a child from the bus stop to the school:

Parents receive an SMS/Email saying that the bus has left the school. They also receive the ETA at their child's bus stop.
The bus reaches the child’s bus stop. Parents and the school administrator can keep track of this through the application.
The child boards the bus and swipes the RFID card. Parents receive an SMS/Email confirming the child has boarded the bus.
The bus reaches the school. Parents and the school administrator keep track of this through the application.
Parents receive an SMS/Email alert as the child swipes the RFID card while de-boarding the bus at school.The school can check the bus attendance reports with time and location.

Powerful & Easy-to-Use Application for Schools

School administration can manage and monitor school buses on road through a web-based application. The application ensures that the school administrator gets immediate SMS and email alert when:

  • Bus is standing at a particular location for longer duration.
