Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Craven County Schools has the innovative mobile device app and website entitled, Here Comes the Bus®.
Here Comes the Bus is free for the 2023-2024 school year, and enables you to:
- See the location of your child’s bus both before and after school
- Confirm that your child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both
- Receive a push notification* or email message when the bus is near your stop, has been substituted, or when we have important information to relay
Here Comes the Bus is powered by Synovia Solutions™, makers of the GPS-tracking technology used by Craven County Schools to increase safety and cost savings as it relates to our school bus fleet.
Available in three languages (English, Spanish and French), the Here Comes the Bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
To sign up or to learn more about Here Comes the Bus, visit http://www.herecomesthebus.com.
