BusRight provides real-time GPS information on school buses to parents, students, and school administrators. So far, they have raised $5 million in funding from Underscore VC, Long Journey Ventures, and prominent angel investors.
Keith Corso, founder and CEO of BusRight remembers cold mornings waiting for a late school bus in New York. School buses are critical to transporting millions of students safely and punctually. Yet, no one would know where the buses were.
Drivers, transportation directors, and school district staff had to work with pen and paper to plan routes, with buses going off-grid the moment they left. Also, school district bus routes are usually planned once a year, a complex process that usually takes several weeks of tedious manual work but does not allow for optimization.
After graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, Keith founded BusRight to help school districts manage their fleet and get their students to school safely and efficiently. With BusRight’s software, routes can be planned and optimized easily, and attendance and driver location can be tracked real-time.
