If you’re a mom or dad with school-aged kids, chances are you’ve heard of bus tracker apps. In case you didn’t get the memo, here’s a quick summary: Bus trackers, like SafeStop, are smartphone applications that enable parents and caregivers to track their child’s school bus in real-time.
More Parents and School Officials Will Be Able to Securely Track School Vehicles In Real-time Before Winter Arrives
Charleston, S.C. (November 11, 2015) –SafeStop, the original mobile app that connects parents and school officials to the vehicles transporting their students, has announced an additional 250 school vehicles in five states are launching service in November before the winter weather arrives. This launch will provide more than 30,000 parents the opportunity to utilize the app in both large public school systems and small private schools.
“As leaders in this area we are seeing more and more interest from school districts this fall as the temperature drops and parents across North America are learning more about SafeStop and how it is a new ‘must have’ for busy parents,” stated Patrick Gallagher, Director of Sales for SafeStop. “School officials who are looking to provide a higher level of customer service to their parents are turning to SafeStop which means not leaving parents and students out in the cold to wait for the bus. Our unique algorithm gives parents the comfort and security they need to know where and when the bus is coming and when it has arrived.”
App Will Feature Both Student and Vehicle Tracking That Allows Parents to Know Where the Bus and Child are While on Route
Charleston, SC, June 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – This fall, the James Island Charter High School and Charleston Charter School for Math & Science in Charleston, South Carolina will begin using SafeStop on their school buses. The innovative app connects parents and school officials to the vehicles transporting their students. The addition of these two schools adds to the regional density of private and charter schools utilizing SafeStop in the Lowcountry.
Parents will be able to securely register online for SafeStop through the respective schools, download the app, and use it when the 2015-2016 school year starts. The 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.
