GPS Fleet Monitoring for Education

Both private and public education systems can benefit greatly from the use of GPS tracking solutions for school buses and other school-owned or operated vehicles.

Manage School Bus Driver Activities

Keeping an eye on driver behaviors is absolutely critical for education organizations. Drivers are entrusted with the task of safely getting students to school and back home on a daily basis, so enforcing safe driving habits is a must.

With GPS fleet monitoring, education organizations can monitor driver behavior such as: 

  • driver speed
  • acceleration
  • handling on turns
  • braking habits
  • checking the location of the vehicle at all times

This helps education vehicle fleet managers make sure drivers are behaving safely and obeying all local regulations. For example, fleet managers can check to ensure that buses are properly stopping for railroad crossing on their route.

Additionally, events such as stop arm deployment and hazard light activation can also be remotely monitored and logged, complete with a time/date and position stamp so that such activities can be accurately tracked.

In a worst-case scenario, such as a crash, GPS data for the bus’ last known location can be given to emergency responders. GPS tracking is especially useful for keeping buses on-route during field trips, where drivers may not be familiar with the route they’re driving. With GPS map data, buses that go off-route can be quickly guided back on the proper path.

Preventing Breakdowns of Education Fleet Vehicles

No school system wants to see a busload of students stranded on the road because of an equipment failure. GPS fleet tracking for education fleet vehicles helps prevent this by helping school systems improve their maintenance scheduling.

GPS monitoring equipment can accomplish this by collecting key engine performance data that can help identify when specific maintenance tasks are necessary. This allows school fleet managers to put vehicles in for preventative maintenance so that they don’t break down on the road.

Improve the Efficiency of Your School Vehicle Fleet

With all of the data that GPS tracking systems can capture, it becomes easier than ever to monitor vehicle performance and make improvements.

For example, GPS systems can create reports with your vehicles’ actual mileage and performance data, including turn-by-turn monitoring of vehicles sorted by any time period you care to specify.

This helps you create better estimates of fuel consumption needs, and spot when abnormal vehicle use patterns occur. All told, GPS makes for a safer, better-monitored, more efficient school vehicle fleet.
