South Burlington School District
The South Burlington School District operates within the Burlington, Vermont metropolitan area. The District is comprised of five schools: three elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. The organization manages its own school bus fleet to service the local student community.
South Burlington School District provides schooling to families within a wide geographical area; some students travel a little over an hour via school bus each way. The district recognized the need to install on-board WiFi to make these lengthy trips a more manageable ride.
We started by installing our on-board WiFi system on just one bus so the district could try our system and gauge the result. The trial was a success, and we were asked to implement our system for the other buses on their long-distance routes the following year.
Our first installation was in the fall of 2010, with program rollout in fall 2011. Across all installations, over all the years, South Burlington School District has never had a problem with any of the systems. They simply work. Meanwhile, all the district’s long-distance passengers have enjoyed dependable, broadband-speed connectivity throughout their rides.
