4mativ provides comprehensive and integrated transportation management and technology solutions for schools, districts, and others in the education ecosystem. We aim to save schools money, to enhance compliance and safety, and to remove the headaches that transportation induces for schools and families. Ultimately, we aim to transform transportation systems from a liability into an asset schools can leverage to expand learning opportunity, and to do so using state-of-the-industry technology that we are building in-house.
Our current work managing multiple transportation vendors for five schools in Minneapolis-St. Paul has us on target to significantly reduce their per pupil special population transportation and general education transportation costs from last year. We have also ensured contract and legal compliance of all vendors and introduced processes & tools that improve accountability, safety, transparency & accuracy of billings, and communications to families. We have taken cost, risk, and complexity out of the system at these schools, and freed up precious staff time.
4mativ is now gearing up to serve several more schools and hundreds of new students for the coming year (SY2020-2021) – and to engage in important diagnostic and consultative work at a pipeline of additional schools this spring.
