The STRIDA App for Drivers

Drivers of school minibuses are required to complete a minibus check before each journey but the practical problems of completing the checks, recording this has been completed and reporting any issues is a significant barrier.

With STRIDA you simply download the free app via an invite from your transport manager, complete an essentials 12-point checklist and hit ‘submit’.  The vehicle mileage and safety check will have been recorded and you will have been able to detail any issues with comments and a photo.

  • Unique login for each driver

  • Daily walk-around video

  • Quick 12-point vehicle check with a green/red traffic light system

  • Ability to add photos and notes for any concerns/problems

  • Peace of mind that the completed check has been filed with the transport manager.

Champions of Minibus Safety

‘Daily walk-around checks must be undertaken each time before a vehicle is used and are checks on things like engine oil, brakes, tyre pressures, warning instruments, lights, windscreen washers and wipers. They’re usually undertaken by drivers.’

Conducting at minimum, a daily walk around check rather than pre-journey checks will mean that your school transport management will be compliant according to the regulations as set out by your Section 19 Permit, but drivers do need to take responsibility to protect themselves.
