Safe and on-time students transportation in Costa Rica

Student transportation required a system to control arrival time, compliance with schedules and routes monitoring. Traditionally, a student transport company (minibuses, buses, buses) provides its services and controls routes through telephone calls and manual records; this causes the absence of historical data that can be used in case of problems or complaints at the educational centers.
