The Clinton Community School District is proud to announce a new software program that will be implemented this school year called Here Comes The Bus that will allow parents to have real time information on bus routes. Here Comes The Bus is an easy-to-use website and app* that enables you to see the location of your child’s school bus on a smartphone, tablet, or personal computer.
Here Comes The Bus uses global positioning system (GPS) technology to locate and track your child’s school bus. It is powered by software from Synovia Solutions, who are experts at tracking data, which they’ve been providing to fleet managers across North America since 2001.
You know when the bus is near your stop, so you can send your child out at just the right time. If your district has the Student Ridership service as well, you can use the Here Comes The Bus to see when your child has scanned on and off the bus.
Here Comes The Bus uses HTTPS, just like a bank or online store, which means that all communications between your web browser and the site is encrypted and secure. (That’s what the S in “HTTPS” stands for – secure.)
Here Comes The Bus is available at no cost to all families who qualify for school transportation based the state guidelines. That’s right, it’s free for unlimited accounts for families! That means grandparents, babysitters, neighbors, and friends can share the data.
There will more information at Back to School nights and through school communication channels on this service.
