What is School Transport Software?

School transport software is a specialised type of software designed to manage and optimise transportation services for students getting to and from school.

Road xS software plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety, efficiency, and reliability of school transportation systems, which may include buses, vans, and other vehicles used to transport students to school and back, as well as to school-related activities.

Key features and functions of our school transport software include:

Route Optimisation: Optimising the most efficient routes for picking up and dropping off students, taking into account factors like distance, traffic conditions, and the number of students at each stop and demand on the day. This feature aims to reduce travel time and fuel consumption.

Vehicle Tracking: Incorporating GPS technology to track the real-time location of school vehicles, allowing schools and parents to monitor the vehicles’ whereabouts and ensure student safety.

Attendance and Safety Management: Managing student attendance on the vehicle, enabling drivers to check students in and out as they board, and enhancing the travel safety of students.

Communication Tools: Facilitate communication between parents, drivers, and school administrators through notifications, alerts, and messaging features. This can include information on bus arrival times, delays, and emergencies.

Maintenance and Compliance: Helps manage vehicle maintenance schedules and ensures compliance with safety regulations and standards. This includes keeping track of vehicle inspections, driver certifications, and necessary repairs.

Reporting and Analytics: Generate detailed reports and analytics on various aspects of the transportation service, such as route efficiency, journey totals and more. This data can help schools make informed decisions to improve service.

Our school transport software is typically used by school administrators and transportation managers to streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve safety and satisfaction among students and parents.

As technology evolves, so does Road XS providing the most modern and user-friendly experience across desktop, mobile and tablet devices as well as the option for custom apps with push message technology.

Road XS: The Next Generation of Transport Software

Road XS offers cutting-edge software automates the entire process, from calculating realistic pickup windows and drop-off times to dynamically adjusting routes in real-time.

This automation guarantees that students experience minimal delays and unnecessary travel time, streamlining your operations and significantly saving hours each day for transport teams.

Road XS stands apart by revolutionising the approach to demand responsive school transport services. We believe in treating individuals with the respect and consideration they deserve, moving beyond the impersonal “parcel” mindset that prevails in much of today’s transport software.

Our philosophy recognises the importance of minimising student’s time spent in transit, ensuring a journey that is not only efficient but also comfortable.

Road XS prioritises arrival times, ensuring that passengers reach their destinations promptly.  It will also group students together to their nearest stop.  By offering alternative travel times, we ensure flexibility and reliability, enabling passengers to make the most of their day without compromising on service quality if a complete school DRT service is operated.

Road XS is not just software; it’s a commitment to transforming DRT services into a seamless, stress-free experience for both passengers and providers alike.

Welcome to the future of responsive transport.
