OPAL Solutions is designed specifically for school transportation to track and monitor student ridership in a safe and non-intrusive way.  Knowing if and when a student got on or off the bus accounts for a significant portion of calls parents make to schools and is information that schools need to know.  OPAL Solutions provides accurate and immediate answers.

Just What Schools Have Been Asking For

OPAL Solutions has succeeded where others have not by using its patented Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) technology to solve the problem.  Students carry a small card that contains passive RFID technology that logs each student’s entry or exit automatically when the student passes the scanner located on the school bus.

Load and Unload Process Stays the Same

Customers say it works because OPAL Solutions requires no action on the part of drivers or students, other than to carry the card.  OPAL Solutions delivers the required performance without impeding the normal loading and unloading process.  It’s a true win/win/win/win for school officials, drivers, students and parents.

For Parents’ Peace of Mind
