School Bus Logistics Launches Online Portal for Routing

Posted on August 10, 2018

DENVER — School Bus Logistics LLC recently released RouteHub, a new online portal to communicate, store, and manage a school district's routing information.

The portal also serves as a communication tool between districts and their assigned route logistics specialist. Districts are able to add, change, and delete students in the portal, avoiding the process of faxing or mailing in request forms.

The portal is an additional feature in use with School Bus Logistics’ Route Management Services, a turnkey routing solution for school districts. According to the company, the offering can eliminate inefficiencies, reduce overall routes, and increase savings.

"Through Route Management Services, and the new RouteHub portal, we are able to provide schools with complete turnkey routing,” said Robert Jacobus, CEO and founder of School Bus Logistics. “We can quickly build, develop, and manage all routes and student changes as well as handle the maintenance and upkeep of their current routing software. Because of this, we can cut routes, adjust bell times, and save districts money."
