About
BusWays notifies parents when their child gets on & off the school bus & allows schools to cut transportation costs.

Industry
Landscape

In the U.S. alone there are over 14,000 school districts (our customers) with around 26 million students traveling by bus everyday. While school expenditure in school transportation USD$17 billion and when adding the numbers in Latin America it turns out to be around USD$29 billion.

The
Problem

Schools have very outdated school transportation services. Schools are not transparent with parents, they don’t know key data points on their transportation system, and they are very inefficient in their bus routes.

The
Solution

BusWays tracks individual student ridership through bluetooth beacons. This allows schools to aggregate key data points to optimize and make better decisions on their transportation systems, and parents to receive real time notifications on student attendance and the school bus.
