Revolutionary school bus management system to be launched in New York

The New York City Department of Education has taken the next step in providing a revolutionary school bus management system for the largest school district in the US by partnering with on-demand transport provider Via.

This management system will be the first integrated, automated school bus routing, tracking, and communication platform in the world. Parents and students will have the ability to track, in real-time, their bus’ whereabouts and receive frequent and reliable communications in the event of service changes, improving safety and bringing important peace of mind to all users of the system.

The Department of Education will be able to achieve operational efficiencies and reduce transportation costs by utilising Via’s algorithms to optimise school bus routing.
