Benefits for schools
No worries for schools about children on buses
Are teachers doing roll-calls and headcounts on bus lines for daily travel, sporting events, and excursions? Has there been an incident causing unnecessary stress such as a child getting on the wrong bus, alighting at the wrong stop, or failing to get on a bus? An excursion returning late while concerned parents waited? With RollCall – parents, schools, and the bus company have awareness of individual children in transit. Track journeys in real-time. Receive real-time email alerts about variations or deviations in journeys or passengers. Schools and bus companies that use RollCall are delivering the peace-of-mind over school kids in transit that parents expect and demand.

What schools are saying
Schools and parents of school children all over Australia are talking about the many benefits of RollCall for school student travel monitoring
“Roll Call has been a fantastic addition to our school. With its ease-of-use and efficient support team, it has helped to streamline our processes for student bus travel. Feedback from parents has been very positive. In addition, the system has allowed the School to commence a casual user option, resulting in improved utilisation of buses.”
“Braemar College implemented RollCall in 2017. As a regional school of 890 students, with almost all travelling to and from school by bus, RollCall has enabled staff to identify which students are on a particular bus at any given time, whether individual students boarded their usual or an alternative bus, and where they disembarked. This enables staff to quickly identify where in the bus network students are, which is particularly useful if they have diverged from their usual routine. RollCall is a reliable and cost-effective product which supports students’ safety across our network of 16 buses. As Principal of Braemar College, I highly recommend it.”
With near 2000 students here at Bacchus Marsh Grammar and a high portion being bus travellers, it was important to find a solution which could provide teachers and parents greater visibility and safety on students journey to and from school. Partnering with RollCall to provide this service has been a great decision, their willingness to meet our unique requirements and listening to our needs has made it that much easier to deploy this product into our greater community.
