Student Ridership / Student Tracking (Only)

With more parents working, children are often responsible for getting themselves ready in the morning and to the bus stop on time. An often bigger concern is that they actually got on the bus to go to school, or got off the bus at the right stop after school. School administrators and parents alike worry about the transportation safety of their most precious cargo – children that ride the school bus.

Student Ridership is student tracking software that gives school administrators and parents comfort in knowing their children made it safely on and off the right bus at the right stop. By using a barcode or RFID proximity reader on the bus, students will scan their ID card as they board and exit the bus, giving the district actionable information in the event a student attempts to exit at the wrong stop. An alternative to the barcode and RFID readers is Synovia Solution’s Mobile Data Terminal, or MDT, which allows the driver to select the name of the student as they board or exit the bus.
