Driving A School Bus: A Driver's Personal Story

Traveling the open road visiting prospective and new clients has reminded us why many of you chose the transportation industry. 

It's also reminded us why we decided to learn and help make the industry better. 

The details. The engines. The powerful machines. 

We remember growing up watching PBS videos on Big Trucks, Buses, Dump Trucks, and Fire Trucks. 

We’ve been listening to you tell us your stories, too.

Introducing Miss Pat!

Miss Pat now drives a bus after spending nearly three decades driving an OTR truck. She says she prefers the slightly more laid back atmosphere and the company of the schoolchildren she takes to and from school every day for most of the year. 

“I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else,” she says. 

It’s typically a joyful job, even when she has to be stern occasionally to ensure the safety and positive experience of the kids.

She also says she wishes she had something like FleetRevolution’s DVIR app when she was driving a truck. According to her, the time savings alone is enough to justify switching from the paper cards.

Better still, she has more time to read her books before she begins Route 51, as she likes to do.

Stories like these inspire us to keep working each and every day to ensure we’re providing you the best tools to assist your bus fleet businesses. 

If you’d like to try the DVIR app, we’d love to talk.

We’re confident it’ll make the process easier, more enjoyable, and save a lot of time too.

Just to get you started, we’re offering a no-strings-attached, 100% free demo to prove its value. 

Get started here.

We’re excited to work with you!

Should the Charter Bus Industry be On Demand?

Will the charter bus industry face the threat of Uber-level disruption?

The answer is likely not. Think of the types of customers who want that type of instant service. The truth is, there's not a lot of large groups with any idea where they want to go or the slightest idea of how to get there. 

That's where you come in by the way. Your customer experience team is pushing to provide the best travel experience possible. Your maintenance team is laboring to put the best looking and smoothest running fleet on the market.

Your drivers require the most efficient routing and measures to keep themselves and your customers safe.

Your owner/operator is forming the vision of the company's future while keeping a pulse on the activity and progress of the day-to-day business. 

And it's a competitive market. You demand to supply the best service while growing your bottom line. 

That's where we come in.

Streamline the flow of information. From planning the trips to maintaining the fleet, everything is connected and at your fingertips in a moment's notice. 

Teams can even be color coded into sales, route building, inspections, maintenance, and whatever organization your unique business requires.

Instant messaging is built in to enhance your company communication like never before. 

The "Add Trip" feature is what other, cheesier SaaS software marketers might call the Trip Generator 9000 (TG9) or something else corny and bloated. 

We think it's an integral feature built in to save you time, money, and paperwork. No fluff.

Adding a trip is like dropping a stone into a pond and seeing the effects ripple seamlessly and beautifully throughout the rest of the app.

Your logging. Your planning. Done for you by a dedicated mobile platform, all on your own device.

That's an impressively powerful computer in your pocket. 

Don't let the pessimists get you down. If a smartphone was really just for calling and messaging, we wouldn't have smartphones.

There'd be no reason for them. Why not demand the most out of your tech? 

Check out the way your information is being displayed on the Calendar, your window into the schedule of your company. Go ahead, see where you stand. Have all of your info, all in one place. 

You've never had a booking and scheduling system like this. It's planning for the mobile fleet. 

Bottom line:  the Uber app doesn't pose a threat to the Bus Industry.

But there's an app revolutionizing the Bus Industry from the ground up. 

Organized for greatest efficiency and coordination between separate roles and features, there's really not another mobile software like it. 

Supply your entire team with the tools they need to drive your business. 

Automate your sales process.

Verify your reports instantly. 

Engage your customers like never before.  

Try FleetRevolution today and see.

Free for 30 days. 

No contract after that.

We think you'll find the service valuable. 

Over time? An essential investment.
