Here Comes the Bus
The Ken-Ton School District is currently testing a new bus tracking app called Here Comes the Bus. This tool uses GPS technology installed on school buses to provide families with the location of their child's bus on a map, scheduled and actual arrival times, and push/email notifications when the bus is near.
Parents/guardians are invited to take part in the testing program by completing this simple form. Shortly after completing the form, you will receive an email with instructions on how to sign up. Participants will then be able to use the app just as they normally would to track their child's bus. They will also be able to report issues they encounter to assist the district in readying this resource for district-wide implementation.
Please note that, since this system is in its early testing stages, it may not function as intended at times. Additionally, Here Comes the Bus will not work when students are transported by another bus (such as when multiple routes are combined due to the driver shortage).
The Transportation Department has worked extremely hard to implement this resource here in Ken-Ton while navigating the challenges of the bus driver shortage, which has created significant challenges for school districts across the country. We sincerely appreciate the dedication and commitment of all our bus drivers, bus aides, and transportation office staff who continue to do whatever it takes for our students and families!
