Student Ridership is centered around the safety of our students. According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCEMC), 460,000 children in the U.S. are reported missing every year (2021). The NCMEC further states that a child goes missing in the U.S. every 90 seconds. However, both law enforcement and independent agencies agree that the use and advancement of technology continue to lower these numbers every year. Crosswalk K-12 and Student Ridership are an intricate part of the technological solutions that increase student safety and serve as a deterrent.
Student Ridership also provides bus drivers with accurate facial recognition of students, their assigned buses, precise address, exact bus stops for drop-offs, and ensures that the students who should be on a specific bus are the correct students. The added benefit of Student Ridership is that it helps both new drivers and substitute drivers to efficiently learn the route. Furthermore, it helps prevent students from boarding the wrong bus or getting dropped off at the wrong stop. In addition, there are detailed reports of when and where students boarded the bus, and this information is shared with the administrative office in real-time and can be accessed via PC or mobile devices.
