Stop For the Bus
The Spring-Ford Area School District is proud to partner with BusPatrol and four neighboring school districts this school year. BusPatrol is a safety technology company with the mission of making the journey to and from school safer for children. BusPatrol's safety programs change driver behavior and create a culture of awareness and responsibility around school buses. The program and cameras will go-live starting in September. 

The partnership with BusPatrol will reduce the number of illegal passes in Spring-Ford, by educating drivers and helping local law enforcement to capture and enforce violations. The AI-powered stop-arm cameras capture the license plates of vehicles that ignore school bus stop-arms.

As well as stop-arm cameras, the entire school bus fleet at Spring-Ford Area School District will be outfitted with 360° cloud-managed safety cameras and a silent alarm system. This will improve safety on the school bus and allow the school district to respond immediately if there is an emergency. The technology, installation, and maintenance are provided at zero cost through BusPatrol’s violator-funded business model. Click here to learn more.
