Applaud School District for Installing GPS Systems on Its Buses

Target: Jordan School District Transportation Director Herb Jensen

Goal: Applaud school district for putting GPS systems on its buses in order to improve student safety

In West Jordan, Utah, the Jordan School District decided to put GPS systems on all of its 200-plus buses. Since there are so many buses, it became hard to keep track of them all at once. Now with the GPS systems in place, administrators can easily keep track of the buses and parents can feel better about their child’s safety.

These GPS systems allow administrators to know where the buses are, where they have been, and how fast they are going. This way, administrators can be assured that bus drivers are sticking to their route, and not putting children in danger by speeding. While this was an expensive project, officials assure the community that these systems will soon pay for themselves and they will help keep children in the school district safe. If it means that children will be safer and the bus company will be more efficient, these systems are well worth the cost. Applaud the Jordan school district for putting GPS systems on their buses.


Dear Herb Jensen,

Installing GPS systems on all of the buses in the Jordan school district was an excellent idea. It is understood that keeping track of over 200 buses became a tedious and somewhat impossible task. With that many buses, it is hard to tell which buses come and go and at what times. Now, thanks to the GPS systems, administrators are finding it much easier to track each individual bus. This not only makes administrators’ jobs easier, but it also makes parents feel better about their child’s safety.

It is an excellent idea to rely on these systems to track where the buses are, where they have been, and how fast they are going. If bus drivers do not stick to their route or a bus goes missing, now it will be extremely easy to find it. Also, it is a great safety feature to be able to tell how fast the buses are going. Parents can be sure that if drivers are not doing the speed limit, administrators will know about it. This keeps children safe and parents happy. Overall, this program is extremely beneficial and Jordan citizens are very grateful for the installation of GPS systems on all buses.
