Here Comes the Bus
WCPSS Transportation provides families of students who ride a yellow bus to school with a free bus tracking system called
Here Comes the Bus.
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.
Get started with Here Comes the Bus at https://herecomesthebus.com/parents/get-started/.
You will need the district code and your student’s ID number to sign up.
For your smartphone or tablet, download the Here Comes the Bus app from the App Store or Google Play.
- The WCPSS school code for Yellow Bus is 67500.

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.
Once activated, you can customize or edit features, including how the app will communicate with you and the size of the notification radius.
Please understand that we sometimes make bus substitutions when preventative maintenance is due and in response to the management of bus drivers. When a bus substitution is made, some features of the Here Comes The Bus app may not work.

One last note about delayed buses:
Parents, please be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine. You should contact transportation only if they have waited more than 30 minutes or if school has started and their bus has not arrived.
