Kajeet SmartBus™

The #1 Provider of School Bus WiFi

Upgrade your school buses with Kajeet SmartBus™. We provide a safe, easy-to-use WiFi solution that enables students to keep learning while they travel. Up to 65 students can connect at one time, making SmartBus ideal for daily bus routes, athletic buses, field trips, mobile STEM labs, and bookmobiles.

We’re also excited to announce the Kajeet SmartBus 5G solution. Now, you can connect to 5G where it’s available (and to a 4G LTE network when it’s not.) Contact Kajeet to learn if this cutting-edge solution is available in your area.

A Cost-Effective Way to Bridge the Homework Gap

Students without internet at home face additional barriers to completing their homework, have lower graduation rates, and score lower on standardized tests when compared to their well-connected peers – even before the pandemic. School bus wifi helps bridge that digital divide.

Around 30 percent of all U.S. students do not have adequate internet at home – causing an internet gap the moment they leave the classroom. Our wifi-equipped buses fill the homework gap for dozens of students at a time.

K-12 students in the US spend an average of 180 hours on the school bus each year, equaling 20 total instructional days per student.

With SmartBus™, providing an additional instructional day can cost as little as 58 cents per student. A yearly subscription includes:

  • Installation
  • Equipment
  • Service

You may also be eligible for supplemental funding through recent grant initiatives. Visit our Funding Sources page for information about securing funding help. 

And with no expensive set up fees, SmartBus is a smart solution.

Easy to Install, Easy to Maintain

No Network Know-How Needed

We understand that school resources can be thin, which is why we’ve made sure that if you can work a phone, a screwdriver, and four screws, you can handle maintenance of  SmartBus™ WiFi. On top of that, we provide lifetime resources, including:

  • Dedicated Account Manager
  • Training for Administrators
  • Tier-1 support for parents, students, and educators

Since web traffic to and from SmartBus runs through the Kajeet network, there is no need to involve your already overburdened IT department. Support is simple with Kajeet’s Sentinel® platform, which allows administrators to manage devices, filters, access controls, and data allocations, as well as get key insights into program performance.

Sentinel® – a Safe, Convenient IoT Solution

Our SmartBus Wifi solution is intended for educational use only, which means the CIPA-compliant filters are pre-configured to block inappropriate sites, social media, and streaming sites (like TikTok and Netflix).

If you do encounter problems, most issues can be corrected over-the-air by submitting a service request through the Sentinel® portal. And if a replacement router is needed, we’ll ship you a new router. Replacing it is as simple as unscrewing the cable to the old router and swapping devices. Additionally, you can always reach out via our support platform – either leverage our knowledge base or submit a support ticket.
