Here Comes the Bus Ap
Here Comes the Bus translates GPS data into an easy to use customizable map that works on a computer, tablet or smartphone. The app allows you to see where the bus is and how close it is to your stop.
NEW FOR 20-21
Families that have used the app and already have it downloaded to a phone or computer should make sure they have the latest version. This can be verified by visiting the Play Store or Google Play on your device. If you have the option to update the Here Comes the Bus app, please do so.
We also recommend that you remove your Student from the HCTB APP and then add them again. This will ensure that you are pulling in this school years Bus/Stop assignment and not the previous school year. This will require their student’s school ID. Once that data is entered, the app should be ready to go for 2020-21.
Please disregard notifications when your student is not attending in-person instruction. The app does not allow us to distinguish based on cohort assignment. Families also have the option to turn off notifications but remember to turn back on when your student is riding the bus.
Get started with Here Comes the Bus at Here Comes the Bus Ap. 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.
When entering your student’s last name on the app, spell it as it appears on your Home Base/PowerSchool account. If there is a hyphen in the name, make sure you include it. Only enter the first 18 characters of your student’s last name. If your name is, Yellow-School Bus Wake, you will enter Yellow-School Bus in the last name field.
