“It has eliminated all of the guess-


work for our parents in regards to bus schedules, and we never get calls about bus timing in our offices. Plus, it not only empowers parents to know where their kids are on their route to or from school, it provides our office with precious time to devote to other initiatives,” said Hopson.


Allen said that the Ladue School


District has been using SafeStop for just a few months but added that he anticipates parent calls about bus location will also decrease as more and more register to use the app. “We’re anticipating that being a good point as well,” he said.


A common concern for school districts in adding new technology is cost, howev- er, as they often are operating with limited budgets. With SafeStop, school districts have options. Tey can either cover all the upfront costs and offer the technolo- gy to parents free of charge, or they can


subsidize it via ongoing, monthly fees paid by parents. In Allen’s case, he said TransPar took


care of the installation costs, while par- ents also pay to register.


“Te districts can, if they want, cover that cost, or if they want to pass that cost on to the parent. It’s pretty reason- able,” he said. Overall, Allen said that he has been


“impressed” with SafeStop and that the company has been receptive when he or his team have questions. But student transporters are not the only ones who are responding positively to the app. “For the most part, all of our calls or comments have been positive and parents appreciate the comfort of knowing that they can see where their child is along a bus route and when the bus is expected at their specific bus stop,” said Simmons. 


Campbell Hall transports a total of 175 students on five school bus routes each day.
