Crocodile is an online platform and smartphone app for schools and parents to facilitate the organisation of walking buses to school To engage the children, the app enables gamification through reward schemes for pupils, classes or year groups. Crocodile will also create useful analytics for schools, helping them understand trends in walking bus activities.
Crocodile app is being piloted by a number of schools in the UK. If you are interested in joining the pilot please contact us at [email protected]

Our solution aims to promote confidence in parents. It will deliver a positive confirmation of arrival and a secure approach to digitised personal details. Importantly, Crocodile is designed to make it simple for busy parents to book their child onto a bus. As parents ourselves, we understand how busy parents' lives can be.
Reduced car travel means environmental benefits, and an active start to the day ensures health benefits and increases social interaction between children. The final benefit is in education – research has shown that children who walk, scoot or cycle to school arrive more alert and ready to learn.
