What is SmartBus?

SmartBus is a user-friendly school bus management software that allows all users from different endpoints to monitor school bus tracks, student attendance, and safety by receiving real-time alerts. It offers separate monitoring apps for parents, managers, schools, and drivers. It’s an ideal app for all schools and bus service providers that want to provide optimum tracking and safety tools to parents and kids. SmartBus simplifies bus management by providing GPS tracking tools, attendance monitoring, safety metrics, trip management, and advanced scheduling with real-time alerts and instant notifications. With its features that allow users to track real-time bus location, parents can easily save time and effort to safely ensure their kids get to school. SmartBus offers advanced tools that enable managers, parents, and schools to track driver performance, student attendance, and trip safety. Drivers are provided with a separate app that can receive real-time messages and alerts from parents if students won’t be attending school on a given day. Through such a nifty tool, drivers get to save significant time and energy as students that won’t be attending classes need not be included in a day’s route as drivers are already conveniently duly notified.

SmartBus Benefits


The main benefits of SmartBus are student safety, sound time management, data transparency, and speedy deployment.

Student Safety

SmartBus ensures student safety by providing tools that allow for real-time tracking and notifications. Through its user-friendly dashboard, parents, schools, and bus service providers can easily track where a bus is and how long it will take before it reaches a destination. Kids need not wait outside as parents will easily be notified when the bus is already near their area. It also comes with safety metrics that track the performance of drivers and the efficiency of routes.

Sound Time Management

SmartBus give all end-users the means to instantly interact with one another. Parents can conveniently message drivers and bus managers beforehand if their kids won’t be able to make it to class on any given day. Through such an advance and proactive notification mechanism, drivers can easily avoid unnecessary delays and efficiently save on time and energy in planning routes. Students that won’t be attending class need not be picked up as due notification is already in place.

Data Transparency

SmartBus offers accurate monitoring and recording tools. With just a click, parents can easily check their kid’s attendance on a weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. Without the need to follow-up on anyone, parents can easily monitor where their kids are just by checking on the SmartBus’ real-time route tracker. With SmartBus, parents can easily know once their kids have safely arrived in school.

Speedy Deployment

SmartBus has separate dashboards for all end-users that go by the same and interconnected communication channel. Through it, school and bus managers can easily execute and deploy policies. Schools can instantly notify drivers and parents of new pick-up and drop-off points in just a click.
