However, managing an entire fleet of buses (School owned and contractual) is a different ball game altogether.

Maintaining Driver/Conductor records-
The responsibility of bringing the children to school and dropping them safely back is that of the bus driver but maintaining proper records/documents of the driver and conductor is the responsibility of the school. Skolaro’s Transport Management Application has provision where you can safely keep the details like allotted vehicle number, Driver/conductor name, mobile number, license number along with issue and expiry dates, experience etc. and also upload the relevant documents into the system.
Institute’s fleet details including its running and maintenance cost, purchase date and price, insurance details etc with supporting documents are available at a click of the mouse.
Communication and vehicle tracking-
It is natural for parents to keep security as one of the most important criteria while deciding upon the best school for their ward. Safety of the child when in school as well as while in transit cannot be ignored. The bus tracking system of the school transport software will track the movement of the school bus in real-time and notify the authorities in case of any deviation from the allotted route, over-speeding and unauthorised stops, thereby reducing the risk of any untoward incident. In case of delays due to unusually heavy traffic or otherwise en-route, the parents can be kept updated through an SMS. Vehicle tracking is configured as per the requirement of the organisation. While the school authorities can track all the vehicles 24×7 the parents can do so only till the stop that has been assigned to their ward.
