    Tips:

    • For their safety, we continue to request that students be at the bus stop five minutes before the bus arrives.
    • Notifications for your bus are based on a radius and distance away from your bus stop. You can customize that radius within the app to provide the best timing for notification.
    • Students who live in dual households can be added separately. One household will be entered with the regular student ID number and the other will be entered with the student ID plus * (for example, 12345*)
