- Seat-belts Upgrade
More than a few decades, there have been arguments on whether seat belts in school buses were a good idea. Now, it seems like they aren’t fading away due to the increased need for more safety concerns.so, it may be the best idea to upgrade the seat-belts now, rather than later.
- Smart-screens for Drivers
Another important growing trend is putting smart devices next to the driver for efficient driving. Different forms of commercial transportation, such as trucking, have been integrating smart devices into their driving systems, to great effect. With a large touchscreen nearby, the driver can effectively see maps, communicate with the transport team, or even monitor students via in-bus camera systems. With smart devices becoming cheap and affordable, this is an upgrade most schools could afford to investigate.
- Utilize cloud-based tools
Use cloud-based student behavior tools to analyze and keep track of student behaviors while commuting to schools. Also, the schools can utilize cloud systems to accurately record their attendance using smart cards.
