Tyler Technologies Launches Traversa Ride 360 Application

PLANO, Texas--Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced it has launched the Traversa Ride 360 web and mobile application. Part of Tyler’s existing Traversa®  solution, Traversa Ride 360 allows parents and students to access their own secure data for school bus stop location, route, and pick up time information.

Traversa Ride 360 sends all data available in the Traversa platform straight to parents and students; data can be accessed through a specific Traversa Ride 360 web portal or by using the Traversa Ride 360 native mobile app for Android or iOS. For school districts already equipped with GPS on their buses, including Tyler Telematic GPS, Traversa Ride 360 can use the bus’s location to let users know when to expect their bus each day.

The application brings ease and accessibility to students and parents, and reduces the amount of support calls to school districts. A few of the features of Traversa Ride 360 include:

  • Accessibility – Parents and students can now easily access routing information on Apple®and Android mobile phones, meaning accurate and timely routing data is always available.
  • Integration – Student and routing data is automatically synchronized between Traversa and Traversa Ride 360, ensuring data is correct and eliminating the risk of duplicate reports.
  • Intuitiveness – Parents, students, and administrators can quickly and easily access student data with little or no training in a user-friendly interface.
  • Confidentiality –Authorized parents and guardians are able to access the transportation data of their own children only, which keeps student information secure.

“We’re excited to introduce the Traversa Ride 360 application for parents and students,” said Ted Thien, general manager and vice president of Tyler’s transportation solutions group. “Parents and students are more empowered by having information at their fingertips about their school bus, so they can get to school each day safely and on time.”

Traversa is used by hundreds of school districts across the country to manage bus routing, fleet maintenance and work orders, entity management, planning and operations, and reporting. In addition to Traversa, Tyler offers additional transportation, school financial, human resources, and student information solutions, which empower school districts to bridge the silos of information between their departments.
