What is Schools?
‘What’s your ETA?’ – It’s a text that parents send their children daily, along with queries about arrival times that prompt regular calls from concerned family members to schools and district authorities. With busy lives to coordinate, parents need reassurance that their child’s journey is running to schedule.That’s why we’ve developed location tracking applications that are designed specifically for the needs of parents, schools, and districts. Together they provide instant access to accurate, real-time information on the location of school buses and their predicted arrival times.
