Dear parents,

 HERE COMES THE BUS—real-time school bus location on your phone
     Thanks to a free app available to parents (and students) with smartphones, a program called Here Comes the Bus allows you to view the real-time location of your child’s school bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer.  GPS units installed on all Kent Schools buses provide the information you need to send your child to the bus stop at just the right time, helping protect them from inclement weather.  What’s more, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your child hasn’t missed the bus.

Here Comes the Bus enables you to:

  • See the location of your child’s bus both before and after school
  • Confirm that your child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both
  • Receive a push notification or e-mail message when the bus is near your stop or if we have important information to relay

     Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions™, makers of GPS-tracking technology.  Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), download the Here Comes the Bus app from the Apple App Store or Google Play.  You will need your student’s ID number and our school district’s Here Comes the Bus code, which is 87209
