Boundary Analysis

Analyzing attendance zones as a result of school closures or openings can have a direct impact on transportation costs. School Bus Logistics can take student data and apply it to boundary scenarios such as walk zones, attendance areas and hazard boundaries. Some examples of boundary analysis are:

  • Increasing walk zones to reduce transportation costs
  • Balancing enrollment areas due to increased attendance
  • Shifting grade levels at buildings

Route Optimization

As a school district's student population increases or decreases routes can be evaluated as well to make sure routes are running efficiently and are cost effective. Here, stops and runs can be evaluated by ridership to see if they can be combined to reduce cost. Some examples are list below.

  • Stop Optimization to reduce transportation costs
  • Balance loads on Runs/Routes to reduce transportation costs
  • Balance routes due to boundary/bell changes

Bell Schedule Analysis

Changing school bell schedules may have an impact how and when children get to school. School Bus Logistics can take a look at routing impacts and costs if those times go into affect. School Bus Logistics can analyze how moving to a 2 or 3 bell schedule would impact routing and associated costs.
