A Bussing app that allows high school students to book seats on a school bus, improving efficiency of bus routes, bus capacity and giving students freedom and power to manage their routes to school. This also creates an opportunity for those that are not within the appropriate boarders to have access to the school bus service when it is under utilised.

Hi, I’m Sahar Khan founder of Bus Me and today I will be telling YOU all about my business… Revolutionizing the bussing system. I live 5 houses out of the school bus borders which means I cannot get on the bus. Parents are frustrated and end up having to drive me to and from school. I am not able to socialize with friends. One day, I got on the bus with my friend as the driver didn’t check the pass and the bus was almost empty. And…I wasn’t the only one committing a crime that day. Introducing Bus Me, an innovative school bus seat reservation app. Made for any devices and all high schools for grades 9-12. Currently, 84% of my school population uses the school bus. There are 15 buses for Jean Vanier CSS specifically. Around 34% of the buses are under and/or over utilized because students are either switching buses or not using the bus at all. By having a more up-to-date and interactive bussing system that allows students to have a little more freedom. Bus me is an app that puts the rider in control. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they have a seat on the bus on their specific route and allows the student to be organized while also giving parents comfort knowing where their child is. To sign into the app, you'll have to enter your student number which will be provided by your school, after that you’re set. You’ll soon be able to see what bus route you’re assigned. Reserve seating will be available on the main menu and you’ll simply pick your preferred seating, monthly. Priority will always be given to students who live within the borders and excess will be available to everyone else. Our target market is high school students (grades 9-12) and our major stakeholders are bussing company, parents and schools. Bus Me is a free app for students that will charge the school boards $1.60 per student, per year using the app. We estimate the annual revenue to be approximately $5.3 million per year. So revolutionize bussing with Bus Me!
