Here Comes the Bus® app for Vendor Transportation

  • Here Comes the Bus® app for Vendor Transportation

    Here Comes the Bus® app is a school vehicle tracking app that can provide the location of Vendor Transportation Services to parents via text, email alerts, or mobile application. 

    If your child is assigned to Vendor Transportation Services, the vendor will call you to let you know when service will begin. On the first day of service, you can log into Here Comes the Bus® to see the location of your child’s vendor vehicle. During route changes, the app may reflect new information that has not yet started.

    Again, the vendor will call you with a start date when changes occur. If the vendor uses a substitute vehicle, the app information will not be accurate. If you have questions about the arrival of a vehicle, please contact your child’s vendor directly.
