Monitor and Manage Your Students, Drivers and Schedules

The safest and most efficient way to securely transport students is to have a complete overview of your school transportation operation. With over 30 years experience, TripSpark's K-12 transportation software solutions suite has been specifically designed for the complex school transportation environment and features a unique multi-calendar interface. We are proud to have been selected by more than 50% of the largest school districts in North America and currently transport over 2 million students with 50,000 buses.

Calendar-based Scheduling and Routing

Build optimal routes to eliminate inefficiency. Calendar-based schedule manages large amounts of data with ease, allowing for quick trip creation, editing and planning. Plan for current and future semesters with multiple "what if" scenarios.

GPS Tracking

AVL services track and monitor the movements and locations of every bus on the road. Complete insight into the location of students on their routes with RFID student tracking cards. This is essential information for parents and staff.

Bus Driver Management

Software efficiencies encourage driver retention rates and make it easier for drivers to bid on certain trips. Determine schedules based on seniority and all trips connect with payroll software to streamline payment process.

Dealing With Student Schedule Changes

Make edits to a student's routing to accommodate a one-time change. Set student as on vacation to suspend service for a specific duration, rather than having to build an entirely new schedule.

Ensuring PLAN matches the ACTUAL

GPS data analysis ensures that pre-designated optimal and safe routes are followed by drivers. Drivers access in-vehicle maps of your planned routes and not generic Google maps that can't display your actual plan.

Students with Special Needs

Improve special education service levels by ensuring routes are optimized, reducing on-board times, and easily manage Medicaid reimbursements and student data regarding eligibility.

Multi-calendar Scheduling Reduces Labor

Calendar-based scheduling allows you to edit, maintain and use a single database of student information without having to create ‘secondary’ contact information for each student with difficult transportation schedules. Allow drivers to bid on trips and fairly distribute trips based on seniority. All trips connect with payroll software to streamline payment process.

  • Manage students with multiple drop-off and pickup locations
  • Future planning for “what if” scenarios
  • Historical data is on hand for accountability

In-Vehicle Solutions for Student Tracking and Safety

Mobile Data Computers can allow drivers to remain in constant contact through GPS locations services. Turn-by-turn directions can be passed to drivers by using your pre-designed routes and not automatically generated maps in order to maintain safety and route requirements. Options include a student tracking system that requires RFID cards to scan in and off the bus to track location and trip history of every student.

  • GPS view of buses in real time
  • Data used to plan optimal routes
  • Added security to every trip
  • Monitor driver behavior

Lessen the Load with a Single Database

Other software solutions require you to save each school term (or a summer school term) as a separate database and then you have to create a new database to start preparing for the upcoming school year (or summer school). This can cause an enormous amount of data replication, delays in planning and the inability to research historical transportation records by date. Our single database approach, along with the base calendar functionality of our routing software, makes searching for information for any date in history possible.

  • Maintain current database of addresses and contact information
  • View historical data by date for incident investigation
  • Edit schedules without causing huge IT problems
  • Plan for upcoming years without a great deal of data copying and labor
