Bus Master just keeps getting better!


Microsoft Announces it's mapping software to be retired in favor of more powerful and accurate Bing options!

Microsoft MapPoint, Streets & Trips along with AutoRoute and their .net services will no longer be offered as of Dec. 31, 2014, with technical support ending July 14, 2015. Users with active Volume License may continue adding licenses until their three years agreement ends.

Microsoft has finally decided to concentrate all its power into the development of the Bing API Suite of Tools. Bing provides all the features of MapPoint and a whole lot more. Bus Master currently uses the Google API and Bing Services to geocode your Student Data, not MapPoint. We only use MapPoint to display user data and allow user to interact with the mapping.

This concentration of effort by Microsoft is allowing developers like Bus Master a whole range of exciting new possibilities. From Bing Web Services to Windows 8 Desktop Apps and Android we have a whole new bag of tools currently being developed to make routing and mapping of students much easier. The bottom line is the possibilities utilizing the Bing API far outweigh a single desktop application like MapPoint!


Look for other Transportation Packages to begin to play catch up. Remember how fast things can change? Just a few short years ago it was a minimum of $50,000.00 for a mapping package and GPS was $5,000.00 each? Check back often for exciting updates on the power of Bus Master!
