The mission at MyBusStop.com is to create a communication link between parents and school districts
using today's technology. Most mobile phone users are very familiar with text messaging and rely on
it to communicate with a vast number of people. MyBusStop.com brings this technology to the school bus
system as an automated solution.
Text messaging is the most widely used mobile data service, with 74% of all mobile phone users worldwide
using it daily. People are very familiar with text messaging and the benefits it brings. Text messaging
is most often used between private mobile phone users, as a substitute for voice calls in situations where
voice communication is impossible or undesirable.
As good as text messaging is for individuals, it is a logistical nightmare for large scale communication,
until now! Imagine sending a text message to all parents 5 or 10 minutes before the bus reaches their stop or
sending parents a notification that the bus is going to be late today. MyBusStop.com makes that connection
between school districts and parents, giving them timely information at their fingertips.
Students no longer need to stand waiting in the dark, cold or wet conditions waiting unnecessarily for long periods
of time at the bus stop and parents no longer need to be late to work because they had to wait with their child at
the bus stop. School districts no longer need to answer the many phone calls from parents who are wanting to
know where is my bus!
Running a timely and efficient school bus system is difficult enough without all of the additional problems that
occur without notice or warning: a driver gets sick, a bus malfunction, and traffic gridlock. Imagine text
messaging all of the parents on the effected route, letting them know of the delay and how the pickup timing
will be affected. This is just one of the benefits of MyBusStop.com. All notifications are completely automatic
and will not require the bus driver to do anything additional while driving their route.
In addition to bringing a valuable and needed service to parents, the MyBusStop.com vision is to also bring some
great scheduling, communication and tracking tools to school districts at absolutely no cost!
In fact, with the MyBusStop.com rebate program, most school districts will actually receive money back for using this system.
