<i>Bus Pal</i>

Veta Christy of Peach State Public Radio reports from Atlanta on a new paging system that's being installed on school buses and alerts school children in the morning, when their bus is within a few minutes of picking them up. It's called the Bus Pal, and sends a signal from the bus to a pager in the home, alerting them that the bus is approaching. It also alerts parents or caregivers, when students are about to be dropped off after school.
