Crosswalk K-12 School Transportation Software


Monitor and Manage Your Students, Drivers and Route Schedules with Peace of Mind The safest and most efficient way to securely transport students is to have a complete bird's eye view of your school's transportation operation. UniteGPS' Crosswalk School Bus Transportation Solution Suite has been specifically designed for the ever-changing school transportation environment. We look forward to speaking with you about our GPS tracking, Bus Driver Management, Route optimization/Scheduling, Student Stop Check and Substitute Driver Attendance features and more.

Route Optimization Background
UniteGPS is the start-up from Maine that is reinventing school transportation. Until now, school bus routing has been overly complex and expensive. Across the country, more than 90% of school bus routes are not optimized because they are created manually. We created an online platform so districts can get started today.
How does it work?
Route Optimization works by uploading student addresses and other data online. Transportation leadership sets eligibility rules, the distance students can walk to a stop and other details. Our routing experts will walk you through the process every step of the way. The routing engine generates optimized route maps, stops and students assignments to each stop.
Stop Check
Prevent students from boarding the wrong bus, being dropped at the wrong bus stop or being left behind at the end of a route. Our solution detects each bus stop and displays the pictures and names of the kids assigned. Drivers use touch screen technology to verify whom boards and disembarks. Crosswalk K-12 software supports RFID readers for districts that prefer their students to carry cards.
Mobile App for Parents & Students
Invite parents and students to view the real time location of their school bus. Parents may view their child’s route, bus stop and bus location. They are unable to see speed information. Crosswalk supports communication to parents in several languages including.
Driver Report Cards
Driver login enables tracking of each one of your drivers. We have the capability to provide you with detailed information on rapid acceleration, harsh breaking, and speeding.
Precision Data
Our platform is designed for precision. Data is sent from our device aboard each vehicle every five seconds. The data is shared instantly with users. The data is stored in our mapping database for reference for 10 years.
Vehicle Telemetry (J1939)
Keeping your fleet running at peak performance is critical to safety and controlling cost. Mechanical issues that go undetected or unreported by the drivers can lead to unnecessary damage and cost of repairs. It’s like having a diagnostic vehicle scanner plugged into the vehicle at all times.
