Our tablet-based mobile program focusing on 4 key metrics to provide the safest drive for our students and our community
DriverScore is a tablet-based mobile program that was developed in-house by our data science team. First Student is continuously searching for safety improvements that make our drivers the safest on the roads for your children and your community. Through historical analysis, our team identified 4 key areas that have the biggest impact on safety.
- Hard Braking
- Rapid Acceleration
Through GPS we capture every time an occurrence happens on one of our buses. DriverScore records the event and exactly where it happens, so when a driver returns, they can be quickly coached.
Drivers are given a score of 1 to 5 stars, and the results are posted for drivers to see. The program’s visibility is motivating, it has created friendly competition between drivers, improved morale, and made work fun.
