We are excited to offer the mobile device app Here Comes the Bus. This app allows families to view the real-time location of your child's school bus on a smartphone, tablet or computer using GPS technologies with which each school bus is equipped.

Here Comes the Bus enables families to:

  • See the location of your child's bus both before and after school
  • Confirm that your child's bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both
  • Receive a push notification (text) or email message when the bus is near their stop, has been substituted, or when we have important information to relay

This easy-to-use technology is free to you. Simply download the Here Comes the Bus app to your device through the App Store or Google Play, sign up for an account using SCHOOL CODE 29231, add your student and you are all set! You may also sign up and use the app on your computer desktop.

Be sure to check out the directions below in order to personalize the app for your child's bus and your preferred notifications.
