Mobile App Connects Parents & School Officials with Vehicles Transporting Students
Charleston, SC, June 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Beginning next school year, Evanston/Skokie School District 65 in Illinois and the Lockport City School District in Lockport, New York will be using SafeStop, the app that connects parents and school officials to the vehicles transporting their students.
Parents using SafeStop in these districts will be able to securely register online, download the app, and use it when the 2015-2016 school year starts. The innovative app provides parents and caretakers with a real-time map feature that displays the location of their child’s bus, estimated arrival times at their bus stop, and an alerts and messaging center to relay important service information from the school or transportation provider.
