Year-Round and Modified calendar bus rider families are now able to use a free bus tracking system called Here Comes the Bus. Traditional calendar families will be provided access to the app several weeks after the start of school for their calendar.
Here Comes the Bus translates GPS data into an easy to use customizable map that works on a computer, tablet or smartphone. It allows you to see where the bus is and how close it is to your stop.
You can sign up for Here Comes the Bus at https://herecomesthebus.com/getting-started/. You will need the district code and your student’s ID number to sign up. The WCPSS school code is 67500. For your smartphone or tablet, download the Here Comes the Bus app from the App Store or Google Play.
Once activated, you can customize or edit features, including how the app will communicate with you and the size of the notification radius.
It is important children feel prepared without feeling overwhelmed. Talking with your child and involving your child in the preparations can help ease their fears.
