Benefits of Opt-In Transportation
Without knowing WHO needs to be transported it is difficult to develop a plan for HOW they will be transported.
Provide parents with a higher level of confidence resulting from direct communication with the district and its transportation department.
The only way to plan for efficient transportation is to know the constraints, the variables, and the inputs.
Further enhance your communication with a ridership system where students swipe a card when they get on and off the bus. This provides real-time information to parents via a smartphone app.
Improve Your Transparency by Integrating Parent Portal With Student Ridership
What if improving student safety and transportation efficiency took one simple card swipe? When you use Edulog's Student Ridership with Parent Portal, you get scanned data in the app when students board and disembark the bus.
Every School Bus Seat Is Precious
A seat on the bus is an important asset not to be squandered in general, but especially in times of reduced capacity.
Ensure the most efficient and reliable school opening by gathering actual ridership data directly from parents.
Parent App Icebreaker
Introduce your community to Edulog Parent Portal with the Ride Registration service. With careful planning and education, families quickly adopt the new app.
With an accurate and complete accounting of every student on the bus every day, schools are better able to optimize routes for the safe, efficient, and effective transportation of students.
Monitor your ridership numbers to support contact tracing and validate passenger loads for state Medicaid reimbursement.
At the school level, a data field is populated in the student information system (SIS), indicating whether the student wants school bus transportation in the morning, afternoon, both, or neither.
Edulog’s Routing and Planning system imports data from the district’s SIS. The data is then populated in the Edulog Route Management system where routers use that field to assign students to the appropriate transportation.
Don't Just Take Our Word for It
"Edulog’s Parent Portal helped us prepare for a school year unlike any other. To accommodate the district’s new A/B schedule, we used the Ride Registration feature to allow parents to opt-in for school bus transportation. Once a student was assigned to a bus route, parents were notified by the app. About 80% of our riders’ parents utilize the app, which streamlined the registration process. The data from Ride Registration was imported directly into our Edulog Routing and Planning software. With limited capacity, new CDC Guidelines, and reduced ridership, Ride Registration helped us pinpoint exactly where our services were most needed and allowed us to run and maintain efficient routes with everything that is going on. Not only do parents feel informed, it saves our department time. Now we can proactively notify our parents and students of the school bus location and any changes to their planned transportation."
