HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 19, 2018) – Henderson County Public Schools is excited to announce the adoption of Here Comes the Bus®, an innovative mobile device app and website that allows parents to view real-time locations of their children’s school bus. The school district’s official launch date of Here Comes the Bus is March 1.
Free to use, Here Comes the Bus will allow parents to create user profiles accessible on their smartphones, tablets or computers, and receive notifications on their smartphones when the bus is nearing a customizable location radius. With Here Comes the Bus, parents will have the information they need to send their children to the bus stop at just the right time, helping to protect them from inclement weather and other roadside dangers.
With Here Comes the Bus, parents can see the location of their children’s bus(es) both before and after school, and confirm that the bus(es) have arrived at the bus stop, at school, or both. Parents of multiple children enrolled in HCPS will be able to add each child to their accounts, and track each individual child’s bus route.
When accessing Here Comes the Bus via the mobile app, parents can receive push notifications (or emails if operating through the website) when the bus they are tracking nears their stop, has been substituted, or when HCPS has important information to relay.
Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions™, makers of the GPS-tracking technology used by Henderson County Public Schools to increase safety and cost savings as it relates to our school bus fleet.
Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
