Transportation directors at school districts face problems that complicate transporting students to school. Among these problems are: budget cuts, fuel costs, and difficulties in hiring qualified drivers or office personnel. Laws affect how schoolchildren are transported and even where bus stops can be placed. Parents, administrators, and school boards seek more accountability and better service from drivers and transportation officials. Tools and utilities can increase the efficiency of the transportation office and the drivers. This white paper will describe using ESRI® tools to address some of these issues.
