To Run

Test Scenarios

The Travel Tracker for Routing has a new sandbox feature that allows you to set up scenarios and work through the What-IF scenarios. If districts decide that social distancing is required, for example, you can have a scenario already set up and can make it your active scenario should your administrators decide that this is necessary. The sandbox feature will allow you to keep your current routes active, without making active changes.

What's in it for Transportation Directors?
Save Time / Money

 

  • Smart Search – Provides an intelligent search feature to locate almost anything desired relative to data entered, saving time and frustration in locating information.
  • Group Auto Scheduling –  Provides fast scheduling for groups to bus stops based on student needs and district policies.  Can pull all students in from Student Information data and create new routes – more efficient.  Example – 10 new kids come in, you can auto-schedule them all into existing routes and stops rather than 1 student at a time.
  • Auto Student Assignment-  Provides auto-assignment of students to stops based on district policies and other flexible criteria greatly speeding up the routing process   

Improved Safety

  • Road and Satellite Maps – Provides highway or satellite views on all maps.  Why is this important?  Satellite maps make it easy to see things such as a corner and where the students will have to walk to a stop – things such as building they have to pass etc.  So if you have to add a new stop, you can evaluate what is around.
  • Map Hazards –  Draw a hazard and/or turnaround locations on maps for all or specific bus routes & trips.  Example:  a construction project and the buses can’t go through that area for 2 months.  You can draw a hazard around that location and it re-routes all buses around the hazard.  Re-routes it automatically around the hazard.  Can enter a start and end date if you want and it will put the routes back after the date ends.

Simple Updates and Editing 

  • Weekly Base Map Updates –  No need to purchase map upgrades. Provides real-time changes to communities with weekly updates eliminates the need for purchasing map upgrades.
  • Extensive Batch Editing – Provides multiple batch editing options to instantly make desired changes to large groups of students. 

Better Decisions

  • Artificial Intelligence – More Efficient Routes: Work faster and more efficiently as the system figures out efficient routes taking many factors into consideration.
  • Document Records – Scan and attach documents to a student record such as discipline, health, IEPs, etc.
What's in it for the drivers?
