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.

We’re excited to work with you!

Routing Your Bus Fleet Toward Safety and Success

There's a surprising lack of innovation in a lot of routing and GPS technologies.

You've probably noticed it too.

Many "softwares" are behind the times and not using the cutting edge mapping abilities made possible by the hard work of TomTom and others who've been leading the way for decades. 

Why keep crucial routing features separate from the rest of your workflow?

Efficient, agile routing is important to the planning and scheduling of drivers and buses. Your essential tools should be a part of the whole package. 

That's why FleetRevolution comes stock with the most powerful mobile routing capabilities on the market.

Not just the ability to create, test, and view routes, it's a 4-in-1 powerhouse. Inside the system, we've implemented four key aspects to get you moving:

1. Planning

Breeze through the interactive planning feature as you watch the route come to life in real-time. Impress your customers with the speed at which you deliver compelling and easy to understand trips of a lifetime. 

Complex school bus routes with 30 or more stops? No problem. Set it once and watch it perform throughout the entire school year. 

2. Optimizing

Weather and traffic conditions are always changing. That's why the route optimization feature consistently updates to keep your fleet on time and safe.

Have a school bus fleet? You'll love the way you can make changes and see up to the minute results.

3. Deploying

Send your drivers out into the field with the best information. Easily share route info, updates, comments, and more with your fleet while ensuring the safety of your passengers.

Our routing feature was built alongside a seasoned Dispatcher to guarantee she was saving hours of time and extracting the most value from the system. 

4. Logging

For once in your life, you can take your hands off the wheel. Logging and recording of trip data happens automatically and is saved as part of your records. 

All you have to do is enjoy the ride.

Don't wait any longer.
