RouteGuard Travel App

Helping young people travel safely in West Berkshire

RouteGuard

RouteGuard is a pioneering app that uses geolocation technology to give reassurance to parents/guardians, and security to children, for their local unaccompanied journeys.

As a RouteGuardian, parents will be able to plan, monitor, and adjust routes and pre-defined zones, encouraging mutual agreement with their child.

How can I use RouteGuard?

In order to use RouteGuard, the app requires parents and guardians to use a code which will only be issued by a registered school or local authority. This is to ensure that the app is only being used by legitimate guardians.

It is free for all schools and local authorities to sign up, which can be done via the RouteGuard website.

Download the app

You can download the RouteGuard app from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store (for Android devices).
