Many major metropolitan school bus systems are outfitted with RFID systems, namely tags and portals, to track students as they board and disembark.
The goal, to improve ridership visibility, will soon be bolstered by the incorporation of a tablet reporting tool. Using a mobile tablet device, bus drivers and other chaperones will be able to ensure passengers do not leave the bus at incorrect stops.
Pay-to-ride bus services are now also utilizing similar technology to track the number of riders on the bus for safety purposes as well as to track the distance traveled for proper ticket pricing.
The portals are typically at the front and rear exit points of the bus, and in the case of school children, the tags contain no other information beyond a serial number that identifies them in the system. Alerts and events can be set for incorrect exits, failure to exit, and more.
