Bus firm offers parents Wi-Fi school bus tracking

Antony Savvas

Parents in Birmingham can keep an eye on their kids' whereabouts as they make their way to and from school on the school bus.

The Green Bus company, which carries more than 1,400 children to and from school each day in the Birmingham area, has deployed Wi-Fi internet access on all its routes.

Child bus pass holders get free web access which can be used to catch up on homework or, more importantly, link up each others' PSP games consoles.

The Wi-Fi access point on each bus also incorporates GPS, which means parents can keep an eye on the location of their child's bus.

They can do this via a Google Maps interface via the Green Bus website.
