In the weeks before the start of the 2019-2020 academic  year, the department of transportation of Miami-Dade County Public Schools has been testing new features to increase the safety and reliability of their bus fleet. 

Transportation employees demonstrated on Friday morning a pilot GPS tracking program that provides real-time locations, routes, and estimated time of arrival for all county school buses. The data is also shared with county police.
