Where's the Bus App
𝗗𝗢𝗪𝗡𝗟𝗢𝗔𝗗 𝗧𝗢𝗗𝗔𝗬: Auburn City Schools recently introduced the opportunity for bus riders' parents to know their assigned bus's location using the free app "Where's the Bus."
Parents and guardians can see live updates, tracking, and the estimated time of arrival for buses. The school system's objective is to make this application the single communication mode between parents and the transportation department. Once downloaded, be sure to turn on notifications for this app.
To create an account or view updates on a web browser or computer, go to https://wheresthebus.com or download the Where's the Bus app for your device; scan the appropriate QR code in the graphic to be directed to each app store.
