What do you like best?

Verstrans allows our GIS and transportation departments to keep bus routes setup for the school district, pinpointing exactly from where we need to pick up our students and plan routing. It has helped us reorganize our bus routes to save more money and also work with our GIS dept to re-engineer our zone lines when we find issues. There is a ton of reporting that allows us to really look at our routes and drill down to where we have issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The software can be a little clunky. A district like ours has a lot of outlying regions that are not connected, so to get those imported it can be bit of a chore. Updates to roadways and zones are sometimes a bit difficult to import and get correct and re-mapping students are tedious. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the time to let them come in and really talk to you about the software. It has greatly improved our workflow in the Transportation department. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to take our map data and quickly determine if we need to change bus routes for better efficiency or if we need to modify zone lines because of a road that doesn't go through an area anymore, since our bus drivers can report back to us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ability to upload/download student information directly to the Versatrans server and get out student scheduled to their bus transportation. Setting up the boundaries of the district as to assist in identifying non-resident students. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

That it takes 72 hrs to get a student added and showing on the route sheets and in our SIS, Infinite Campus program. It would be better if this process was 48 hrs.

Some of our boundaries are varied along roadways and that is tricky sometimes in setting the district eligibility limits of bus ridership. Some of the trouble shooting involved in why a student that is eligible is not getting routed. Sometimes it's on our end, other times it's Versatrans. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a software partner to assist in scheduling your student bus transportation, I suggest you look into Versatrans. The customer service is outstanding and the assistance they provide to properly scheduled students to transportation has been a real time saver for our district, the bus company, and our families. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ridership confirmation, setting limits to avoid overcrowding of buses. Keeping parents informed of bus route information for their students having accessibility to the information via the download into the SIS, Infinite Campus/Parent Portal on our district end.

What do you dislike?

Some of the icons used are difficult to disurne on what they do, where to look for, running similar reports/viewing data. Takes more time to learn where to go to do specific bus data and exports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They have excellent support and easy to contact for assistance. If you are looking for a user friendly, cost effective transportation scheduling and reporting program, give Versatrans a try and set up a trial or webinar. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like this software a lot more because it provides more routing quality, it allows to specify where the students will be picked up, at a specific point if necessary, it helps to improve the productivity of the schools, allowing each of the vehicles to be located by means of GPS. , the way to manage extra trips, helps reduce costs and expenses, their reports allows us to reorganize our routes in the area and when we encounter any problem this software allows us to really see which ones present a complaint and on those routes and deepen to solve them promptly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes areas arise in our region that usually do not appear in our routes, to be able to implement them to the GPS system, that is something that displeases since it does not let us know which route needs modifications or if some student could not be picked up at his assigned time, the interface also I think is very complex, for how simple is this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to organize your transport routes from your institution, versatrans is very easy and flexible to implement those routes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem of hiring drivers for jobs and extra trips is solved, and therefore many expenses are saved, this software also allows grouping a series of students who live in the same area, so that they can only take a single stop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Using Tyler was easy and understanding. There was nothing difficult about it. It's so user friendly and I wouldn't recommend any other program to other districts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing that I personally dislike. It's an easy program to navigate. I haven't explored much, other than requesting and approving trips. So, from my user point of view, I believe Versatrans Triptracker is headed in the right direction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not only is it a benefit for the employers using the program but also the parents of the students, who before Versatrans would call nonstop to the office asking where a certain bus is and when it is arriving. Now, with the app available the parents are able to track the bus and the route that their child is on and receive push notifications. So, now that means less calls and distractions to the transportation office which is a great benefit to consider. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our school district uses Versatrans almost everyday to schedule and organize all the the bus routes, as well as white fleets at more than six locations. This benefits those who are scheduling and approving to keep tract of what is available per day and the locations as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
