JOHANNESBURG – A Thembisa -born BCom Informatics graduate has developed an app to help parents and schools to track scholar transport vehicle in real time.

Tshidi Morabi developed LocTransie to provide parents and schools with SMS notifications of their children’s  journey to and from school.
Morabi, who has more than 20-years worth of experience in the IT sector said she developed the app out of frustration of not knowing the whereabouts of her children when transported from home to school and back.
“I chose to develop this app to offer parents peace of mind,”she says. “I identified a niche in the market that needed immediate action.”LocTransie also allows schools to tick-off when children arrive or depart.The school transport industry in South Africa is huge and estimated to be worth billions of rands. However, it is often characterised by overloading and accidents.
