Gatekeeper Equips School Bus Fleet in Delaware
Abbotsford, BC – August 12, 2021 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (‘Gatekeeper’ or the ‘Company’) (TSX-V: GSI) (OTC: GKPRF) (FSE: 1GK) a video and data solutions provider for public transportation and smart cities, is pleased to announce that the Company has been contracted by the Colonial School District in Delaware to equip its fleet of approximately 80 school buses with wirelessly-enabled intelligent mobile data collectors, interior high-definition video, and optional stop arm cameras. The contract award further permits other school districts in Delaware to equip their fleets under the same contract terms.
The U.S. Department of Education recently approved Delaware’s American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) plan for more than $410 million to safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and equitably expand opportunity for students who need it most, particularly those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This latest contract award provides an avenue for every school district in the state of Delaware to purchase off of without going through a formal bid process,” commented Doug Dyment, President and CEO. “As school districts implement their back-to-school plans, our school bus technologies offer additional assistance in hybrid-learning transportation logistics and overall passenger safety.”
School districts are rapidly embracing video and data solutions on school buses to help provide a safer transportation environment for school children. Gatekeeper has installed more than 34,000 intelligent mobile data collectors and 100,000 video devices on school buses, for over 3,500 school district customers.
