Founded in 2017, BusPatrol is the leader in school bus safety solutions. BusPatrol partners with school districts, law enforcement agencies, and municipalities to deter illegal and dangerous passes of stopped school buses. BusPatrol provides partners with best-in-class technology that modernizes school bus fleets, including a fully turnkey platform for capturing and processing violations. Beyond stop-arm enforcement, BusPatrol also offers school districts cloud-connected internal cameras and telematics data, so schools are empowered with the technology they need to ensure their students a safe journey to and from school.

Brendan Scollans, Managing Director and Co-Head of the Data Infrastructure Strategy, and Jerry Stapp, Managing Director from GI Partners said, “BusPatrol is now embedded in over 20,000 school buses across 16 states, providing a critical public service focused on child safety. School buses represent the largest fleet of municipal infrastructure in the Country, and we are excited about the significant growth trajectory ahead given the Company’s leading market position and the compelling proposition for school districts. Karoon and the rest of the leadership team have a clear vision, and we look forward to partnering with them to build on BusPatrol’s extensive track record.”

As a result of the investment from GI Partners, BusPatrol has significant capital to deliver its safety solutions to additional school districts across the country and to enhance its industry leading offering.
