Here Comes The Bus (HCTB)

We have installed GPS units on our school buses, and are now rolling out Here Comes the Bus to parents and students with smartphones for grades KG-12 on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. We will expand to Preschool very soon.  

Here Comes the Bus allows you to view the real-time location of your child’s school bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer.  It 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 email message when the bus is near your stop, has been substituted, or when we have important information to relay

Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions™, makers of the GPS-tracking technology.

Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store

To sign up for Here Comes the Bus, click here.
