goWSB has been designed to improve the convenience of walking school buses (WSBs) for parents and school communities. Traditional WSBs involve children walking together to school as a group supervised by a coordinator. goWSB enables families to remotely monitor the progress of a WSB through a mobile application that provides real-time visualisation of a WSB's current location, predicted arrival times at pick-up points & security controls that empower parents to better coordinate a families morning routine.
