What are school districts saying about Routefinder PLUS?
“PLUS’ ability to create multiple databases and easily modify routes were key features helping the district successfully reopen on time. We had ton of changes in August and the ease of working in the system, like the ability to drag a group of bus stops from one route and place them on another…it saved hours and hours of work.”
Brad Conklin, Valley Central School District, NY
"PLUS is very user friendly. It will save me so much time. It sequences for you, and all the flexibility that PLUS provides for each individual route is amazing. Map scenarios are incredible." Donna Bonesteel, MSD of Wayne Township, IN
“No matter how small your district is, PLUS can really help your operation become efficient to the point where the job is seamless. I think smaller districts could really benefit from this just as much as districts that have 10 or 15,000+ kids.”
Bob Hiss, Jefferson Local School District, West Jefferson, OH
“We really love PLUS. It is so much easier to use. We were ready early to open the school year in Sept. thank you for directing us to PLUS, we would not have opened so smooth without it.” Nooksack Valley School District, WA
“When it comes to safety its obvious that the feature of making sure it’s a policy where I’m not having students (cross streets)…it’s not something I have to go into to double check if its an odd address or even address. The system knows the level of safety that I want required for particular trips and then to make those changes on my behalf with out having to put that time into…I mean it’s a huge time saver.” Rob Pakish, Hannibal Central School District, NY
