Students and parents in Fairfax County won’t have to wonder anymore that how long will it take for the school bus to arrive. It has become possible with the help of a new app. The app is named as “Here Comes The Bus” and is being introduced by the Fairfax County Public School system. The app will track the school bus thus relieving the families from worrying about the arrival of the bus.
According to wtop.com, “The free app relies on GPS technology and a customizable map that works on smartphones and other devices. The app will provide real-time bus locations via text or email notification alerts.
The school system said the app is encrypted and secure, tracking the bus route, not the individual student, and the only way to get the app is through a Student Information System Parent Account.
One app could be enabled to track multiple kids in the family, and family members can be notified separately.”
The app will be launched on Monday, August 26.
