The System In Action

This is where the magic happens, as the student taps onto the bus many things happen at once:

  • Parents are instantly notified of their child’s scan and are able to track the buses movements from their app.
  • Schools & Bus Companies are instantly updated through our cloud admin application, fares are applied and manifests are filled. Staff are able to track each bus through the dashboard and see exactly which students are on their way to school.
  • Drivers are informed as to whether the student is on the right bus and at the correct stop.

As the bus travels from point A to B the bus company has multiple functions at their disposal:

  • Staff know which students are travelling on which bus.
  • They can track the bus journeys in real-time on an easy-to-read map.
  • The bus company will receive alerts if any journey isn’t going exactly to plan.
  • Bus companies can send an automated alert to all parents on a particular bus if there is a problem.

Once the student has made it safely to their destination and scans off the bus RollCall will immediately update:

  • Parents will be notified of their child’s arrival at the specified destination, with the students account being updated with any fares.
  • Staff will be updated with real-time alerts updating their system.
  • Drivers are alerted if the student is getting off at the right stop or not.

RollCall System Hardware

A central feature of RollCall’s solution is the physical interaction and use of near-field communication (NFC). A Smart Device is securely placed in each bus.

  • Students scan their student cards or NFC tags on the Smart Device.
  • Smart Device holds all bus route information including stops, student details and student stop allocation.
  • Using NFC technology RollCalls Smart Device is able to check whether a student is taking the correct course of travel instantly.

Students tap on and off the school bus using either RollCall NFC tags or simply using their student cards.

  • RollCall can provide NFC tags for all bus riding students, this NFC tag will correspond to each students profile in the RollCall system.
  • Through our partners such as PPC and MonitorWA schools are easily able to hook up their current student cards to our system.

What people are saying about RollCall

"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 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. I am so glad that his school offers this tool to parents and students."

“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.”
