Transport for schools
Book, track and safeguard with ease
Our revolutionary software makes it so much simpler to manage home to school transport. Both schools and parents love our 100% paperless booking system, which provides journey planning, booking and a parent portal at the touch of a button. There’s even the option to take secure card payments for journeys – lessening the admin burden on schools. Vectare’s system integrates with the iSAMS management information system, giving schools the benefit of streamlined management.
Alongside our booking system, and of no less importance, is our vehicle tracking and safeguarding solution. Our specialised Driver and Parent apps are suitable for both iOS and Android platforms and require no additional hardware or devices. They provide schools, parents and transport operators with the ability to track their vehicle in real time, and parents can even see where their child gets on and off the bus. In the unlikely event of an RTC, there is instant access to an accurate passenger list.

Consultancy and transport planning
Home to school transport is essential but challenging. Issues such as traffic congestion, breakdowns and overcrowding trigger complaints and can reflect badly on your school. That’s where Vectare’s experience and award-winning technology comes in.
Our complete transport review will resolve your issues and hopefully save you money too. We can assist with replanning routes, retendering to change operators, and improving internal compliance for school-owned minibuses.
