ShuttleID offers 12-months free live tracking
ShuttleID, the school bus pass and ticketing platform, is offering free live vehicle tracking for 12 months, with the purchase of one of its school ticketing packages in May. The free upgrade provides operators with live vehicle tracking and real-time ticket scanning data, all within a single system.
The LIVE add-on, which launched earlier this year, is powered by a driver-friendly app using a 4G connection. Passengers and parents can see the exact location of their school bus in real-time, accessed directly from the mobile ticket on their phone.
The driver app is designed to provide a simple way to securely keep passengers and parents updated while helping operators save time. Vehicle location is only shared when the driver has started the journey, and updates until the journey ends.
Chris Bell, Shuttle ID Director, said: “With the LIVE add-on, vehicle location is conveniently accessible to customers that hold a valid ticket for their school bus. With the map view available to the passenger at the tap of a button from their ticket, it’s easy for them to see where their bus is. Operators using the LIVE add-on tell us they have already seen a drop in phone calls to their operations team since the introduction.
“The other key benefit of the LIVE add-on is that operators are able to see passenger boarding data in real-time, which is a further safeguarding tool and assurance to parents that their child is in safe hands.”
- The offer ends 31 May 2022.
