'It's a helluva cost to the state, but I believe it's a good thing for it to happen,' he said.
Woods sees the addition of the tracking devices for school buses as a way to ensure rural districts, where buses can travel along dirt roads for hundreds of miles, are funded equitably. He also believes parents who have to drive their children to a cold, windy bus stop could take advantage of GPS tracking technology.
The recent proposal to add GPS trackers is not a new idea for the state. Lawmakers have already spent roughly a million dollars to install GPS tracking devices on school buses. However, just a few weeks after awarding the contract, the state worker who oversaw the installation of the technology went to work for the company that won it. This did not bode well for lawmakers, who were also battling a nationwide economic downturn, and as a result, the funding was inevitably cut from the budget.
Live GPS tracking technology, however, has become more readily available is provides more advanced features than it did even 5 years ago. Democratic Rep.
Real-time GPS trackers, such as LandAirSea's SilverCloud, SilverCloud Sync and Sync-HD, give users the ability to monitor and track the precise location and speed of their vehicles from an internet-enabled laptop, computer or mobile device. The user-friendly SilverCloud Online mapping software offers a wealth of useful features.
One in particular is the innovative ShareSpot feature. With the ShareSpot users will be able to share the live location of their vehicles online in real-time from their website without having to compromise the login information. The shared online mapping window shows precisely where the vehicle is and how fast it's traveling, allowing the public to conveniently see its location at any time conveniently from a web-browser without having to contact the user directly.
This patent-pending feature, gives the SilverCloud platform the edge over other tracking devices, especially for state and local municipalities looking to add GPS units to their fleet of school buses. With the ShareSpot, parents can track the precise location of their specific bus. No more having to guess and wonder if the bus has already arrived, or how long it will take to come to the stop.
The SilverCloud Online mapping software also gives users the ability to set time based and location based alerts, which can be set to notify users and/or parents via text message (SMS) or email whenever a vehicle enters or exits a specified area on the map.
