Back to School: Bus tracking app is now available

Bus App This school year, Union County Public Schools (UCPS) parents will be able to view the real-time location of their child’s school bus on their smartphones, tablets or computers.

All UCPS families who have requested transportation services can access Here Comes the Bus through the free mobile app or website. Parents will be able to see the location of their child’s bus both before and after school as well as confirm that their child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both. Additionally, parents can receive push notifications or email messages when the bus is near their child’s stop, has been substituted, or when UCPS has important information to relay.

Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Please note that push notifications are only available on iPhone or Android devices.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Download the Here Comes the Bus app or visit herecomesthebus.com
  • Click the Sign Up button
  • Enter school code 74436 and click “Next” followed by “Confirm”
  • Complete the “User Profile” box
  • Under “My Students,” click “Add”
  • Enter your child’s last name and student ID number
  • Once you confirm your information, you’re ready to begin using Here Comes the Bus! 

Please be mindful that parents should still adhere to their child’s bus schedule. If you have questions about your child’s bus schedule or student ID information, please contact your child’s school.
