Next year, Almaty plans to launch buses for all public schools. This was stated by the mayor of the city Yerbolat Dosaev during a meeting with the population of the Medeu district.
"Next year we are going to launch a school bus programme in Almaty for all schools. We are negotiating and preparing solutions. We will try to solve this problem faster. There are traffic jams everywhere," Dosaev said.
"If private schools join this programme, I will accept them with pleasure. The city will try to cover all schools with buses, I think this will greatly relieve the streets. We are now preparing a program and calculating the possibilities," the mayor added.
We want to make the trip to school a positive start to the day for pupils and parents and to reduce time lost in traffic jams. This service will give more options to families to arrive and depart from the school with a reduction in the need for a driver or separate car for this purpose.
BatOnRoute is an application specialised in school transportation management, that provides additional security and useful real-time information on the school route, both for the school and for parents. The application is available on App Store and Play Store.
Rozali Trans LLP was chosen for participation in the pilot. This company is an existing transport service provider for Haileybury Almaty. More information about the carrier can be found on their web page https://rozalitrans.kz/
The attendant will monitor the boarding/getting off of passengers and will assist and manage the pupils on the bus. The attendant will provide information from the bus via the mobile application, including recording the boarding/getting off of the passenger, notification of delays/incidents, and any communication with parents in case of need.
A comfortable, modern Mercedes Sprinter minibus with a passenger capacity of 14 seats, equipped with safety belts and warning signs will be provided for transportation.
In this case, the attendant will send a delay notification to the parents of those passengers who have not yet boarded the bus.
In this case, the attendant will immediately inform the Transport Manager of Haileybury Almaty and immediate measures will be taken to replace the vehicle with a proper one and to organise the safe transfer of passengers.
Senior School pupils can reach the drop-on point/go home from the drop-off point unaccompanied if provided with the written consent of the parent/legal representative.
Junior School pupils must be accompanied by a parent/legal representative while going to the drop-off point/going home from the drop-off point.
If the parent/legal representative is not at the drop-off point at the scheduled time, the passenger cannot leave the bus and will continue to follow the route, while the attendant will attempt to contact the passenger’s parent. If communication fails, the pupil will be taken back to the School from where he/she can be picked up by his/her parents/legal representatives.
*A Junior School pupil may be accompanied by older siblings who are pupils of the Senior School of Haileybury Almaty with the written consent of parents/legal representatives.
The attendant will interact with the parents/legal representatives of the pupil through a mobile application to ensure the security of personal and contact information. The actual contact details will not be available to ensure data confidentiality.
Transport services will be free of charge for participants of the pilot and later at the appropriate cost for regular users.
