Parents and administrators have asked for a way to verify that drivers are credentialed by ShuttleBee.  We ask that all drivers allow us to post a picture, and take a short video.

Sign on to your route using Life360.  Here each day, we'll do the following:

  • Check in by noon each day confirming your availability for the route
  • Route Monitor will load in attendance and any updates
  • Take pictures of children as they board and are situated in boosters. 
  • Send as a message or "check in" as  you arrive at each destination.

ShuttleBee utilizes two types boosters.  All children must use boosters unless we have written permission from parents not to do so.  Please become familiar with them and watch the videos below for installation instructions.


Shuttler Orientation Part 9

Unless otherwise discussed, ShuttleBee operates on the School District of Philadelphia calendar.  You can find the SDP calendar here.

If we have enough enrollment from a specific school, we will honor their schedule to the best of our ability.

Please let us know about any unscheduled calendar conflicts.  Individual school calendars and monthly conflicts will be posted on each school page.  Please see below for details.

Here are the policies we'll ask you to follow:

  • Please extend your reservation if you will not arrive back on time.  Each late arrival is $50, and could lead to terminating our relationship with you if not completed.
  • You can enter the vehicle 14 minutes before your reservation begins.
  • You can extend your reservation by text, by the app or by calling Zipcar.
  • Report all maintenence issues directly to zipcar.
  • Please fill up the vehicle with gas if below 1/4 of a tank.  This can be compelted at the beginning or the end of your reservation, but not with children in the vehicle.
  • If the gas card is not working, complete the steps here and copy Kristina.  Then submit an invoice to be reimbursed.
