Security & Internet Access

Emergency situations occur on school buses every day. The ConnectED Bus™ provides real-time access to critical information to minimize those incidents and improve response times. Save precious time – don’t wait for the bus to return to the depot to begin taking action.

Real-Time Access to Cameras On the Bus

When medical emergencies or disruptive incidents (i.e. bullying, fights or vandalism) occur, real-time camera access allows you to immediately take action. In the case of a medical emergency, the cameras can help you quickly determine if care can be administered over the phone or if and when to dispatch emergency responders. When other disruptive incidents occur, the cameras provide a complete record of the event, allowing you to determine the appropriate course of action to enact when the bus arrives on campus.

Real-Time Access to Cameras Around the Bus

When a school bus accident occurs, real-time camera access helps you immediately assess the situation and institute an emergency action plan. You don’t have to wait for the bus to return to the depot to determine the cause of the accident or the severity of the injuries. ConnectED Bus™ allows you to take control of the situation and effectively communicate your findings with emergency personnel, district employees and parents.

Real-Time Camera Access & Student Tracking

When a child is missing, every minute can feel like hours. Student tracking ties into your existing Student Information System (SIS) to provide detailed records of when and where the student got on or got off the bus. Real-time camera access allows you to instantly playback on-board video to see the child on the bus, where they got off the bus and a view of the area around the bus. Combining these critical components helps you quickly and effectively locate the missing child.

Bus Wi‑Fi

Bridging the digital divide is not only critical during the COVID pandemic but also for the long-term success of our students. The ConnectED Bus™ turns your bus into a mobile hotspot to provide education-grade content filtered Wi-Fi internet access both on the bus and around the bus.

Bus Wi‑Fi for Daily Commutes

The average student in the United States commutes over 1.5 hours per day for school. That’s an additional 7.5 hours of potential learning time each week for students that don’t have Wi-Fi internet access at home or need the additional time to complete assignments.

Bus Wi‑Fi for Field Trips & Extracurricular Activities

Aside from the daily commutes to and from school, students spend additional time on the bus while traveling for extracurricular activities and field trips. Providing wi-fi on the bus while traveling and wi-fi around the bus once it’s parked helps students develop time management skills and decreases study time at home.

Bus Wi‑Fi for COVID Relief

The ConnectED Bus™ can be parked where it’s most needed. Provide wi-fi internet access for large student groups in select neighborhoods, apartment complexes or at designated community locations during school closures, evenings, weekends and holidays. The omni-directional exterior antenna allows students to access the wi-fi while maintaining social distancing.

GPS & Student Tracking

Most school buses today have some basic GPS tracking capabilities. The ConnectED Bus™ delivers a comprehensive GPS and student tracking system that goes beyond the basic information to automatically generate detailed reports and provide operational efficiencies for your bus drivers.

GPS Tracking

Beyond the basics of seeing where your bus is or was and how fast it was traveling, the ConnectED Bus™ offers additional information to help you optimize bus routes, manage bus stops and automatically generate reports to help you save time and money. It also provides the necessary route details for substitute or field trip drivers as well as turn by turn directions.

Student Tracking & Reporting

ConnectED Bus™ provides bus drivers with a view of exactly who should be on the bus as well as where they should be picked up or dropped off – helping both new drivers and substitute drivers to learn the route. Additionally, this helps students from boarding the wrong bus or getting dropped off at the wrong stop. Detailed reports of when and where students boarded the bus are shared with administrative office in real-time via mobile devices.

Parent & Student App

The ConnectED Bus™ provides a free app that allows parents to track their child’s school bus for daily commutes, field trips and extracurricular activities. Parents can see exactly when the bus is expected to arrive to help them plan for drop off or pick up in real-time.

Health & Sanitation Management

Providing drivers with checklists to keep students and themselves safe.

The sanitation checklist ensures that the buses are properly cleaned and sanitized.

Contact Tracing

Once a student has displayed an elevated temperature or if they have been diagnosed with an illness, the ConnectED Bus™ solution provides the necessary information for contact tracing. Student tracking reports provide the details of when the student was on the bus. On board cameras show you where the child was seated. Combining this information can help you quickly and easily determine who else may have been exposed.
