Where is BusRight today?
BusRight is a Boston-based company that provides hyper-flexible and safe school bus routes to the largest mass-transit system in the country that carries our nation’s most precious cargo, children. In a few months, we will be operating across four states and working with some of the most innovative fleet operators, school administrators, and government leaders. Our community driven approach stems from our product’s emphasis on student safety and fleet transparency.
