Real-Time Bus Tracking App Launched in Broward Schools • Coral Springs Talk



By Kevin Deutsch

Broward County Public Schools on Thursday launched a new app and website that allows parents to track their children’s school buses in real time.

The Here Comes the Bus app and accompanying site allow authenticated users to view the location of their child’s school bus on a smartphone, tablet or personal computer. Parents and guardians can use the school district code along with the student’s last name and ID number to access the technology.

“For me, it’s peace of mind,” said Dr. Simone Clowers, assistant director of student transportation and fleet services for the district, who is also a parent.

“We are delighted to present this…we know it has been in high demand…it lifts the spirits of parents.”
