ALC Launches Student, School Bus Tracking App

Posted on April 8, 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio — ALC Schools, the student transportation division of American Logistics Company, is now making its My Ride Manager (MRM) app available to school districts across the U.S.

The MRM app is designed to help support delivery of the industry’s customer service and technology to serve both school districts and students, according to a news release from ALC Schools.

MRM allows school administrators to view transportation operations on a district-level view with the ability to drill down to a school-level view with custom parameters configured per district specifications. The app also provides insights on students’ scheduled trips, completed and cancelled trips, as well as real-time information regarding trips in progress, including location, estimated time of arrival, map-view, and driver and vehicle information.

“My Ride Manager is the latest demonstration of our commitment to provide the most advanced and robust student transportation management platform in the industry,” said Gregg Prettyman, executive vice president of ALC Schools. “The more transparency in student transportation, the better, and that’s what My Ride Manager is all about. We value our partnerships with school districts and see this as yet another way technology enables us to work as a seamless extension of the district’s transportation department — providing visibility from home to school.”

For more than 20 years, ALC Schools has supplemented school transportation programs by providing  SUVs, minivans, wheelchair accessible vans, and sedans to assist in transporting ESE/special-needs students.
