Getting started, step by step guide and Setting School Bus Tracker is simple and straight forward. After subscription purchase of package of your choice, you will have access to the School Admin dashboard that will be used to set up and monitoring of the school bus tracking. We provide you a step by step guide on how to setup the school bus tracker system.
Below are the step by step guide for setting your system for the first time.
- Add Guardians/Parents
Login to School bus admin dashboard using the credentials provided. Go to Guardians menu
Click on Add New Guardians, Fill Guardian information including Name, Relation (Father, Mother etc) and Phone Number. Note that the guardians you add are those whose children use your school bus services. As Guardians can add other Guardians using the School Bus Tracking App, you can add just one Guardians/Parent per student, otherwise when adding more than one Guardian for a student, make sure you Select Main Guardian.
NOTE: Phone number entered in the Add New Guardian form will be used to login to School Bus Tracker Parent App.

As the name suggest, routes are the path the school bus will take for pickup and drop off students. In the admin dashboard, click on routes
Click on Add New Route and give route a tittle and choose the school the route belong too. It’s important to give a clear and well understood name of the route that you can easily understand.
