Modern day parenting can be a challenge. There are over 50,000,000 students currently enrolled in school in the United States, and the issues facing their parents are bigger than ever. Technology is helping to reduce many of the stresses that come with modern parenting; school bus GPS trackers are innovating the very way the school day is managed for parents and students alike.
The best ideas are the ones that solve an existing problem. What problems are school bus trackers solving? Why is this technology even necessary, and how are parents benefiting from better school bus data? UbicaBus is committed to streamlining student transportation in the spirit of safety, efficiency, and peace of mind. Here are the ways in which our school bus tracking technology is making parents' lives easier.
"When will my kids' bus get here?" The quintessential question parents have been asking for decades. Late school buses do more than make parents late for work, they also increase the likelihood that students could be in dangerous conditions. Who wants their children to wait for the bus in the rain? Or to stand on a high-traffic street corner for long minutes at a time? School bus tracking apps like UbicaBus do more than make mornings more convenient. They make them safer.
What else do parents worry about? For the parents of the some five million latchkey kids in the United States, the question is often, "Where are my children?" One of the ways in which UbicaBus is innovating traditional bus tracking technology is by integrating GPS trackers with route management; our suite of tools includes software to manage routes, stops, and students. Real-time location monitoring gives parents peace of mind that the bus arrived at the stop associated with their children as well as giving administration granular data that can be used to make bus routes more efficient.
"Am I forgetting something?" Today's parents are overloaded with information; it's easy to lose sight of the day-to-day details of parenting with so many balls in the air. The UbicaBus app allows schools to send "push notifications" and real-time alerts right to parents phones so they'll always know when school is cancelled, the driver's running late, or when the next day is a holiday. Technology is helping parents work smarter, not harder.
It's natural for parents to be concerned about the school system, its employees, and where their education dollars are going. "Who is driving my children?" is a common refrain, as is, "Is my school wasting money that could be spent in the classroom?" Thankfully, school bus tracking software kills a lot of birds with a single stone: On the front-end, providing visibility to parents; on the back-end, giving administrators more control over their bus drivers and their bus budget. It's a win-win.
Parents deserve to be informed. There's too much technological innovation in the world today for parents to feel like they're on the outside looking in.
UbicaBus is solving some of the most simple - yet complex! - problems of modern parenthood, one school bus tracker at a time.
