Bus Tracking App: Here Comes the Bus!
Dear Pike Road Parents,
Pike Road Schools is happy to announce the adoption of an innovative mobile device app and website entitled, Here Comes the Bus®. It allows you to view the real-time location of your child's school bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer. With it, you will have the information you need to send your child to the bus stop at just the right time, helping to increase safety, protecting them from inclement weather and having peace of mind knowing they haven't missed the bus. Here Comes the Bus is free to all Pike Road parents and students and will enable you to:
- See the location of your 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
Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can also be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play.
