Soon parents will be able to track the school bus in which their child is travelling. For, school bus operators in the city plan to launch a website and mobile app to improve their services and ensure safety of students.

The School Bus Owners' Association is tying up with schools, parents groups and government machinery to discuss best practices for school bus operators. “Our website will be a one-stop destination for all kinds of policies and regulations related to running of school buses. Besides, the mobile app will allow cashless payments and let parents submit their grievances. The app will also allow parents to track the school buses,“ said Anil Garg, president of SBOA, Mumbai.

The association also plans to hold awareness drives. Panel discussions will be held on the importance of good quality school bus services on February 7.
