Do you have any unusual methods for getting your school-age children out the door in time to catch the bus?

My eight-year-old son has tremendous problems getting ready for school in time. I've heard all the usual advice about how to get a child ready in the morning, and it just doesn't work.
Things we already do:
- early bedtime
- simple routine
- set out things the night before
- plenty of time in the morning
- sticker chart for getting ready in time
- not play until he's ready for school
- lose our tempers and shout a lot
We're too far from his school, along busy roads, for him to walk or ride his bike if he misses the bus.
Do you have any tricks that I might not have already tried?
