SmartBus is a well-versed school bus management system used to make school journeys safe. It can be used efficiently by parents, school management, and bus driver by using Btrack Parent App, Btrack Manager App, and Btrack Driver App respectively.
In previous blogs about School Bus Management, we had discussed the SmartBus and Parent app. So today we will buckle up our seats and take a trip through Btrack driver app.
A driver is the most responsible person for students’ security on the bus. Beyond safety, he/she is also responsible for taking students from home to school and again from school to home on time. So, it’s important to make their work easier.

To begin the trip you will need to login in to the downloaded app with your credentials.
The first page appearing on the screen is the Dashboard or Home page of the driver page which is the informative part of the driver app. This page shows four important aspects which are:
- Trip Schedule
- Create Trip
- Mark Attendance
As shown in the above image, it describes the location arrival time with the next bus stand route. It will show the detail of the trip.
The top portion shows the estimated start means the time when you will start the next trip, estimated duration means the time required to complete the trip, and estimated end means the time when you will complete the scheduled trip.
Next is the map view which shows the route to the next location. This helps the driver to know the exact location with the shortest route.
The last part, tells you about the exact number of students to be picked up during the trip. It also informs about the time delay caused by the trip.
Now when you start the trip, the map will show the upcoming routes along with the students to drop or pick up from the next trip.
Below the Map, you will see the Trip schedule. This helps you know about the trips scheduled for the day. As you click on this a new page will open as shown in the below image.
