Mornings can be a stressful time. Getting ready for work. Getting your kids ready for school. What if - at least when it comes to making sure your kids didn't miss the bus - you could remove any added stress? No more worrying at the office if they are standing in the dark, or cold, for an untold amount of time. No more worry if they've made it to school safely. And no more worry in the afternoons, wondering if they've made it home safely.That's the beauty of Here Comes the Bus®. Because with the Here Comes The Bus app, both you and your children will know when your bus has entered your neighborhood. With a customizable map, you can see in real time exactly where your children's bus is located. And with your smartphone or tablet, you can even customize the Here Comes the Bus app to send you notifications when your bus is nearby.Once you enroll, your students may also use your account on their smartphone to track the arrival time for their bus.
