We started with a simple idea: bus drivers deserve backup!
Did you know that driving a bus is the only time an education professional is advised to turn their back on a large group of children?
Most transportation departments struggle to attract and retain reliable bus drivers. Former drivers cite the challenge of managing student behavior as a top factor in their decision to quit.
School administrators often want to help but have limited tools. Most buses have cameras that are only used reactively in response to escalated incidents.
Transportant's live audio and video feed encourages school admins to proactively and randomly watch inside any bus in real time. Bus drivers have an alert button to get admin attention, and this automatically bookmarks that moment in the video archive.
Incidents can be addressed live or soon after students arrive at school.
