Team Name: 
The Conductors

Skoolbus is an app which connects parents with school bus routes.    As lifestyles become busier parents are time poor and looking for ways to save time especially where organisation of children is concerned.    Skoolbus uses Twitter to let you know when the school bus is about to arrive so your children never end up in the Principal's office. 

Skoolbus also uses the weather forecast to suggest afterschool activities in your local area.   You can also opt-in to find Skoolbus bus share arrangement with other local parents.   

The application will be funded through selling advertising space to relevent local businesses targeting the parenting demographic. Offers and ads will be sent along with the tweet reminding parents to meet the bus.
