Field trips are a regular part of school life. With BusPlanner® Trips, it’s never been easier to schedule and coordinate all of your field trips — from approval to billing. Whether trips are out of town or just across the city, BusPlanner® Trips can help streamline the administrative process, saving you time and money.

BusPlanner® Trips is available in two editions to suit the varying needs of transportation departments:

  • Standard Edition (SE) is designed for schools and districts that own their buses. This edition offers the administrative tools to effectively administrate approvals, assign drivers, and invoice schools. Features such as driver seniority ranking, variable pay rates , and staff blackout days make it easy to plan trips within your own organization.
  • Contractor Edition (CE) is created for districts that contract out their busing needs. With this edition, the transportation department oversees a bidding procurement process in an environment where private contractors are used by schools for field trips. BusPlanner® Trips CE becomes your one-stop site for planning and awarding trips, calculating costs, and processing invoices.

The BusPlanner software is advanced beyond others, has outstanding customer service and is user friendly.

Assign Drivers and Vehicles

BusPlanner® Trips enables you to assign the appropriate driver — or contractor — to each field trip quickly and easily, with email notifications sent to those involved. Granting secure access to BusPlanner® Trips for drivers and schools makes it simple for others to get field trip information without having to call your office.

Intuitive Workflow Process

BusPlanner® Trips keeps it simple. Trips are created, submitted, approved, assigned, costed, and invoiced — all in one location. The customizable calendar makes it easy to see what’s going on at any time. Schools, drivers/contractors, and admins all have clearly defined roles, reducing confusion and streamlining the trip planning process.

Web-Based Functionality

BusPlanner® Trips is web-based, making it accessible from anywhere. It is available as a stand-alone product or as an integrated part of your BusPlanner® Suite.
