What is Here Comes the Bus®?
Here Comes the Bus is easy-to-use school bus tracking software that gives parents and students the ability to track the location of their school buses. It shows parents where their child’s bus is on a map, and it allows students to accurately gauge just when their bus will arrive. This way, children no longer have to stand outside in the dark during inclement weather for an unpredictable amount of time. All the information is encrypted and protected so parents only receive information about the specific buses their children ride.
What is Student Ridership?
Student Ridership is hardware and software that tracks students as they board and exit the school bus, giving school administrators reporting data that includes:
- Accurate rider manifest
- Statistics needed for reimbursement
- Alerts when a student attempts to board the wrong bus or exit at the wrong stop
Student scans may now be viewed by parents via the Here Comes the Bus website and app, and parents can opt to receive push and email alerts when their child has boarded or exited the bus. Your parents will know the bus number, time of the scan, and exact location.
Bus Pass is another function of the Here Comes the Bus app that benefits the Student Ridership program. Bus Pass is software that allows students to use a barcode on their smartphone to scan on/off the school bus.
Here Comes the Bus and Student Ridership are available in English, French and Spanish.
Right Bus. Right Stop. Right Time.

Added comfort and security.
Here Comes the Bus is taking security and comfort to the next level by allowing parents to not only track their children’s buses, but also know that their children are actually on board those buses. Through the use of student barcode IDs, RFIDs or Bus Pass, our new Student Ridership program will allow parents to individually track their children from the time they get on the bus to exactly where they exit the bus. This gives parents additional peace of mind. It also gives transportation directors and bus drivers actionable information in the event a student gets on the wrong bus, or gets off at the wrong stop.
Here Comes the Bus would like to thank our partners for their generous commitment to making Here Comes the Bus as effective, reliable and robust as it is.
