Feb 24, 2017

224-2-24-2017 Here Comes the Bus

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

You can almost never be too safe when it comes to protecting your child. Waiting on a school bus once used to be a simple everyday thing; now there are countless factors that can cause worry for your child and especially the parent. Here Comes the Bus is an app that aims to keep your child safe from inclement weather and other roadside dangers. In sum, it is a school bus-tracking app that allows you to view the real-time location of your child's bus.

With this app, you'll have the information you need to send your children to the bus stop at just the right time. The app is free and enables you to:
- View the location of your child's school bus before AND after school.
- Confirm your child's bus has arrived at a bus stop, at school, or both.
- Receive push notifications
- And more!

In order to use the app, the school district must have a contract with Synovia Solutions. Visit to learn more.
