Make it easier and more efficient to manage transport services

Our suite of transport software solutions helps local authorities deliver their responsibilities effectively, supporting home-to-school travel services, SEND and adult social care transport, to get people to schools, day centres and workplaces.

Designed to streamline the administration of transport arrangements, including vehicle bookings, route optimisation and eligibility checks, our solutions draw on the education data already held in your Capita system, providing quick, easy access to information on children, schools, establishments, drivers and escorts.

The fully-integrated, customisable portal allows parents and carers to apply online for mainstream transport services or SEND specialist travel, and to easily upload supporting evidence. Your team can then easily assess applications against the relevant eligibility criteria, using automation to reduce manual administration. They can also print tickets, make payments and run budget forecasts.

We offer powerful route optimisation tools which provide multiple route scenarios to ensure optimum use of your vehicles, helping you to reduce costs, carbon emissions and the time spent on the bus by your passengers.

Key features

01

Streamline administration

All the information you need for home-to-school transport, and for transport for adults with particular needs, is in one place, including bulk statutory eligibility checks and the generation of vehicle payments. Staff can save time by setting up the system to print bus passes automatically.

02

Citizen portal to support channel shift

Parents and carers can apply online for transport services via the user-friendly self-service portal, including uploading photographs and additional evidence. The back-office application and the portal work together so data entered by parents directly updates your system.

03

Simplify application assessments

Staff can assess eligibility individually or in bulk, matching information to data already held, such as for SEND, admissions and transfers, early years and more. Once approved, applications can be processed in bulk, automatically informing parents of eligibility outcomes and journey information.

04

Safe and secure

Training details, drivers’ contracts and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks can be added to the system to help with assigning suitable drivers and escorts to specific routes or children/adults.

 

05

Cost and environmental savings

Effectively manage and plan the most optimum routes. Maximising the use of transport spaces reduces costs, carbon emissions and time spent on the bus whilst freeing up your team’s time so you can make the most of staff resources and vehicle use whilst supporting sustainable travel initiatives.

06

Flexible to adjust to local needs

Customise the portal and back-office system to suit your needs, such as adding and editing questions on the portal, and support more customised planning, such as specifying unsafe roads to omit from routes. You can also add discretionary entitlements to fill any spare capacity on vehicles.
