Tyler Technologies has rolled out its new Versatrans Student Tracking product for installation in school buses to identify which students get off at which stops and when.
The system scans compatible student ID cards and sends the data from an on-board HID iClass contactless reader through Tyler’s Telematics GPS Hardware. School bus operators need to also be using Versatrans Onscreen and VersaTrans Routing and Planning products.
