Located in Nova Scotia, the South Shore Regional School Board (SSRSB) services Lunenburg and Queens Counties, with 24 schools dispersed over an area covering more than 5,200 square kilometres. In 2014, the SSRSB used ArcGIS to make school district information more accessible to school administrators and the public through an online school catchment map. The SSRSB adopted ArcGIS to optimize the routes of its school bus fleet, improving route accuracy and reducing the amount of time required to plan routes. The SSRSB has also expedited the assessment and approval of new bus stops by using Collector for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Online.
