Parents are often worried about the safety of their children whenever they are going to or coming back from school. Usually grandparents of school going students pick and drop their ward at the bus stop everyday and most of the times they have to wait for the bus at the bus stop under the unforgiving sun or extreme cold, without any clue of when the bus is actually going to arrive. If the children are grown up, they wait at the bus stop alone, with their heavy bags on their back. In anxiety, they tend to call the bus attendant multiple times, who at times is busy with other parents' call and himself/herself can't predict the traffic that lies ahead of the bus and thus gives inaccurate timelines to parent. Apart from high inconvenience and waste of time, sitting idle at the bus stop can invite more unexpected problems for the children. The social miscreants who watch the kid everyday can create unwanted situations and sometimes lead to disasterours circumstances. Due to inaccuracy of information, bus drivers sometimes have to leave small kids at the bus stop, with nodoby to attend, and thus leading to accidents.
Several B2B vendors exist who host, provide and instal GPS solutions, and while parents receive an SMS on the status of their child’s commute, there no updates on real-time traffic situations. Further, the grandparents who usually do not look at the phone frequently may miss the SMS of bus arrival as we get so many messages everyday.
