About Lynx

Lynx is a bus routing and fleet maintenance platform for school districts and bus contractors. The cloud-based platform offers features including GPS tracking, trip ticketing, routing, fuel tracking, driver management, a web portal, and integration with student information systems (SIS) for safe and secure student transport.

Lynx users can create bus routes using the drag and drop interface, adding and removing individual students to reflect changes in daily pick-up and drop-off schedules. Special circumstances relating to students on each route can be added such as allergies, medical concerns, special needs, and custody issues.

Lynx maintains a record of parent or guardian contact details, as well as route times and home location to help maintain the safety and security of passengers. Reminders of changes to students' normal routing schedule, such as vacations, appointments, and alternative pick-up routines, can be added to ensure all students are accounted for on each trip.

With Lynx's fuel tracking feature, users can see miles per gallon data and information on when and where each tank refill took place. The bus maintenance feature provides reports on vehicle maintenance, depreciation, open work orders, inspection schedules, and more.

Lynx helps me on a daily basis with keeping my data accurate and current and is a huge time saver because managing the data is usually simple and easy to learn.

Pros

I like the ease of use and the personal Tech Support.

Cons

I don't understand when searching a particular student and I use the drop down to choose the different categories that can be included, some of the categories that I would like are not listed as an option, however many others are that I'll likely never use.

Overall, Lynx does what we wanted it to do. It is a little more complicated than we expected but it houses the data we needed it to house and we can generate reports out that we needed it generate. It is not a very nice looking, user centric program but it does a lot of heavy lifting.

Pros

The functionality of the software for the price is very good. It gets the job done that we needed to have done. The different report and search options are very helpful. After you are trained it is relatively easy to use. The customer support is outstanding.

Cons

The data sync is a little clunky. It would be nice if it were cloud based with a better connection to our student information system. The end user interface is not very user friendly or intuitive. When we have questions this generally results in a call to support. However, the support team is always excellent. It is just time consuming to have to call in everytime.

Response from Lynx Software

Thank you for the review and your honesty Kevin! We've made several improvements to the data sync which is now based in the cloud. We are seeing drastically reduced issues. We continue to improve the user interface but transportation logistics is inherently complicated. We will always do our best to serve you!!

start up went great, wonderful training experience, and fantastic support

Pros

Hard to limit it to one thing. The remote support is fantastic. They respond very quickly to emails and calls. I also love the videos that are setup to take you through step by step when you are in unfamiliar areas. I have used other software's that were not user friendly.

Cons

At this time I do not have anything that I don't like about Lynx

Lynx is used for nearly every aspect of managing Phoenix Elementary's transportation department. From routing, student data management, driver data management, vehicle maintenance record keeping, and much more.

Pros

Lynx is easy to learn and to use. Lynx is a capable routing software for school buses and Lynx is great for student data management.

Cons

The route maps and directions we're not user friendly. However the developers created a new map function and now the maps and directions are easy to ride and very accurate.
