Johnston County Public Schools will begin using Here Comes the Bus for the 2021-2022 school year! Here Comes the Bus is a school bus tracking app that gives parents real-time bus location information and alerts to get students to the bus stop on time.
With “Here Comes the Bus”, you and your children will now know when your bus has entered your neighborhood/radius. With a customizable map you can see in real time exactly where your children’s bus is located. And with your smartphone or tablet you can even customize the Here Comes the Bus app to send you notifications when your bus is near, or to let you know when there has been a schedule change.
What “Here Comes the Bus” can do for you:
- Show the real-time location of your child’s bus on a map.
- Track multiple buses if your children don’t all ride the same bus.
- Know exactly when your children arrive at school, or the bus stop.
- Give scheduled and actual arrival times at bus stops and school for AM and PM routes.
- Provide push and email alerts when the bus is near.
- Your account is password protected.
