It’s that time of year again. Schools across the country are preparing for the inevitable end of summer, and the start to the new academic year. It can be a busy time for schools, and we want to help. To do so, this issue of Ridealong with Synovia Solutions will take a deep dive into the different ways schools can be sure they are ready to go come August.
In this edition, we start by exploring the feedback we’ve received about our student tracking app, Here Comes the Bus®, from parents and schools alike. We’ll also look at the latest trends in the transportation department and explain the benefits of having tools such as Wi-Fi and cameras on your school buses.
In the next section, we’ll take a deep dive into topics like student ridership, hiring the best bus drivers, and GPS navigation. We’ll also talk transportation trade shows and provide a case study from one Indiana school that has experienced a very successful transformation of their transportation department.
We’ll wrap up this edition by focusing on preparation for the new school year and how solutions like Here Comes the Bus can make your life as a transportation director a little easier. We’ll dive into the benefits of offering a student tracking app to your parents and students and explain the keys to success, such as effective communication with the district.
So, as you buckle down and plan for the new school year, we hope you enjoy this edition of Ridealong with Synovia Solutions. We’re excited to share the most up-to-date fleet management information with you as you get ready to kick off another great year!
