• Bus Information for Students


    Here Comes the Bus!

    Johnston County Public Schools will begin using Here Comes the Bus in the 2019-2020 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. The app is expected to roll out by the first day of school, August 26.

    The Here Comes the Bus tracking app is free in the App Store and Google Play Store. Simply download the app, create a secure account, add your students and you’re all set! What can it do for you?

    • Show the real-time location of your child’s bus on a map
    • Give scheduled and actual arrival times at home and school for AM, Mid-day, and PM routes
    • Provide push and email alerts when the bus is near or when the bus has been substituted
    • Available in English, Spanish and French

    If you don’t have a smartphone or tablet, don’t worry. You can still reap the benefits of the Here Comes the Bus website on a laptop or desktop computer.
