Keeping students safe during their daily commute is a top priority for schools. Wireless voice, data, and video solutions such as advanced digital two-way radio systems that provide instant push-to-talk and GPS tracking allow transportation directors a way to simplify processes and improve efficiency, while equipping drivers with a dependable communication tool, should they need assistance.
In addition to radio systems, most schools find the immediate benefit of installing cameras on their bus fleet. Camera systems inside of the bus as well as on the exterior are designed to keep track of what’s going on in and around the bus while in operation, which can provide valuable information, should an incident occur.
At ERS-OCI Wireless, we offer a suite of wireless technologies that can help improve bus routing, communication, and the safety of your drivers and passengers.

Many students have long commutes to and from school every day- sometimes as much as an hour. Some schools are beginning to consider equipping their bus fleet wuth Wi-Fi connections so that the commute can be utilized by students to do homework. This is a great solution for students who do not have access to the internet at home as it allows them the extra time they might need to get caught up on assignments. It also provides student athletes with access to get homework done while travelling to away sporting events, or for students and teacher to access research information while on a field trip.
