Kirk of Gold Star Transit, Houston, knows student safety is #1! He chooses DispatchPlus!
School districts are constantly seeking ways to increase student safety and staff efficiencies, and while most already use two-way radios on buses because they are DOT compliant with FMCSA regulations for driver distraction, many of these units are outdated, run on analog systems, and provide a small area of coverage. Kirk Wilkie, Vice President at GoldStar Transit, realized his communication system needed a critical upgrade and contacted pdvWireless to outfit his buses with Motorola two-way radios that include messaging capabilities and a direct channel to dispatchers. “Now, every vehicle in our Houston-area fleet is equipped with a Motorola two-way radio system, which makes it easy for dispatchers and drivers to safely communicate in real time with each other. The clarity is outstanding, there are no dropped calls or interference, and the network has exceeded my expectations in terms of coverage.”
