Here Comes the Bus® and Student Ridership
Here Comes the Bus is a bus and student tracking tool that keeps you informed and your children safe as they travel to and from home and school on the school bus. Your student will use their student I.D. (issued by their school) to scan as they board. This gives you and us the comfort of knowing your child got on the right bus, and off at the right stop.
This easy-to-use technology is free to you. Simply download the Here Comes the Bus app, sign up for an account using SCHOOL CODE 87494, add your student and you’re all set!
Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
