No worries about kids going on school buses

With RollCall, you know when your child is in transit. You can track your child’s journey in real-time.

How RollCall works

App view and real-time alerts for parents

RollCall brings together state-of-the-art travel smartcard technology (similar to Opal and Miki cards) with advanced GPS/telematics bus-tracking technology to give parents and schools full visibility of kids travelling on school buses.

  • Kids tap-on, tap-off the bus or a hand-held device
  • You know when and where your child is getting on/off
  • You know which bus your child is travelling on
  • You know where your child is getting off the bus
  • You receive email alerts if travels aren’t going to plan
  • The school knows what’s happening with your child
  • The bus company knows your child’s planned route

What parents are saying

Parents and caregivers of school children all over Australia are talking about the many benefits of RollCall for school student travel monitoring

I have found the system very useful as a new parent at Wellesley. My son also feels more confident taking the bus because of RollCall. 

My son is in year 5 and is new to taking a bus to school. The RollCall app provides us both with great assurance as he sets out on his own. I use the app to easily schedule his busses in advance, some days he comes and goes from my workplace and other days from closer to home, and I can cancel the bus when we have made other arrangements. I get an email when he boards and disembarks so that I know exactly when he was on the bus and where he has gotten off, and I even know the driver’s name. He has his fob for tagging on and off on the zip of his backpack so it is easy to find when he needs it, and it does not get lost. In the app I can track his bus in real time so if there is ever a delay, I know right where he is. The app provides me with great confidence as a parent. My son like it because he knows that I am aware of his comings and goings and he won’t miss his stop or get off at the wrong place. I am so glad that his school offers this tool to parents and students.

“I love that I can see my son has boarded the bus and where the bus is at any given time. This allows me to get to the stop on time even when the bus is running late – no more wondering if the bus has turned up.”

“I love Roll Call parent app. The RollCall parent app gives me complete peace of mind knowing exactly what time my children arrive at school each day and exactly when they will arrive at the bus stop in the afternoon.  If the bus is running late (or worse me!), no trouble I can see where the bus is en route and relax.  It’s an added layer of comfort and convenience.  Only one app to visit for anything school bus-related.”
