Student tracking software finds lost bus riders
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Teton County school administrators say a new tracking system that uses ID cards embedded with microchips found three missing students on the first day of school.
The district's buses are now equipped with Zonar, which uses the cards to record when and where children enter and exit.
Ed Ahlum, the district's director of transportation, tells The Jackson Hole News & Guide (http://bit.ly/1o1oUss ) that of the 500 elementary school students and about 1,800 other students who rode the bus Tuesday, three children were misplaced but all were found quickly. He says some of them got off at the wrong bus stop or boarded the wrong bus.
Safety officer Kevin Thibeault says each student was found within 30 seconds because Zonar determined the stop where the children got off.
