Option 4 – Bus Pass
Much like using a boarding pass on your smartphone to board a plane, Bus Pass allows your students to use their barcode ID on their smartphone via the Here Comes the Bus App. Ingenious, right?
As school districts strive to get better at keeping students safe, they also must meet budget guidelines. When a district implements Student Ridership, Synovia Solutions’ student tracking program, they must also consider the cost of the ID cards being used to scan on and off a bus, including replacement costs for children that lose them.
Good news! With the Here Comes the Bus app, any student with a smartphone can use it instead of a traditional barcode ID card. And, let’s face it, many kids receive their first smartphone in the 6th grade. So, you’ll not only save money, but more importantly, you’ll ensure an added measure of safety for your precious cargo.
Note: Student tracking is only available if the district purchased Student Ridership hardware and software. Bus Pass is available to students via the Here Comes the Bus app. Purchase of Here Comes the Bus software by the district is not necessary for performance of Bus Pass.
Signing up for Here Comes the Bus is easy.
