A Little Perspective

This is for anyone who has ever, or will in the future, accidentally cut me off on the telephone.

Believe me, I don't take it personally.  When I was about 10 years old I was speaking to my father on the telephone while he was at work.  He was talking away to me and then all of a sudden the line went dead.  A while later he called back to tell me that he had spilled coffee on his desk and couldn't find a good spot to put down the receiver while he cleaned it up -- so he just hung up!

Trust me, getting accidentally cut off now doesn't phase me and I'll definitely call you back.

It's time to get serious

Good Job! to everyone who has their students upgraded in BUSTOPS and your routes planned for the 2011-2012 school year.

If you haven't contacted BUSTOPS Support to reserve your GoToMeeting appointment to upgrade your students, you need to get going.  See my earlier post for steps to be done to prepare for the 2011-2012 school year, and Ken's comments about using student downloads to upgrade your students.

When  you get ready to print, don't forget to review your routes in the BUSTOPS Report Preview screen  before  you start printing, and compare the information to what you have in your students and stops database.  The way your reports have been setup may require update commands to be run within BUSTOPS before you print.

Happy planning!
