Technology and Transportation

 While it is the mission of every transportation department to provide safe, efficient service, here in the Oceanside Unified School District we take that to heart. We combine the latest technology with outstanding employees for the best transportation service available.

ZONAR® System.
Advanced technology also allows our maintenance shop to communicate with drivers in order to help diagnose problems with the engine and other components of the bus, and all buses are equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS) technology.  GPS helps ensure all students are safe and on the route and provides “real-time” locations of all buses.

Along with GPS technology, the district uses video surveillance systems inside buses to help monitor student activity and provide students with the safest possible ride. Video systems allow the driver to spend more time concentrating on the road and what is going on around them instead of constantly looking in the rearview mirror to see what is occurring inside the bus.

Real-Time Information About Your School Bus
Parents – Your school district provides the Edulog Parent Portal Lite smartphone app to help you receive information about your child’s school bus ride. It allows you to see real-time information about the location of your child’s school bus and to receive notifications when the bus is getting close

Two-way Communication/Push To Talk Verizon Network

Communication with OUSD drivers is done by using a digital two-way and Verizon push to talk network. This allows the drivers to communicate with the dispatchers, school sites, or for emergency purposes, including, but not limited to, an emergency call to a law enforcement agency, health care provider, fire department, or other emergency service or entity.

​​​​​​​Safe Drivers
The Oceanside Unified School District is committed to providing the safest most efficient service possible to the students and parents of the district.  And while using the most current technology available is important, safety always begins with the driver. All Oceanside school bus drivers are carefully screened and must pass a full background check, including a local and Department of Justice fingerprint clearance. All drivers must complete a minimum of 10 hours of continuing education each year to maintain their special driving certificate.
