Here Comes the Bus® allows parents real-time access to your child’s bus location through an online portal. This technology will allow parents to create a secure account and log on through any internet connection and get information such as:
- The scheduled pick-up time (morning) and drop-off time (afternoon) for your specific address;
- Possible delays in anticipated pick-up or drop-off times;
- Knowledge of actual pick-up and drop-off times, after the event has occurred;
- Real-time view of the current location of the bus, including an understanding of the direction and location of the bus; and
- Notification when the bus has reached the final destination (the school)
This is being offered through Synovia Solutions, the company that currently supplies the TSC with the GPS technology installed on our buses.
Here’s how you can get started:
- Obtain your child(s) TSC student identification number.
- Next, log on to Here Comes the Bus® at www.herecomesthebus.com. Just click “Sign up Today” to register.
- You will be asked for an account number. TSC’s account number is 75598. You will then confirm that you are a Tippecanoe customer.
- You will then be asked to enter your identifying information. You will be asked for your cell phone number information. This is so you may utilize your smart phone in tracking your child’s bus.
- Then you will log into Here Comes the Bus®. Once there, click on the “My Account” button at the top of the screen.
- You can then add your student to your tracking list. You will be asked for the student’s last name and their Student ID number. You will be allowed to enter all of the students that you want to track. Make sure to click the “Where is My Bus” box next to your student’s name and you will be all set to track your student’s bus.
- You may adjust/set-up your notification radius under the “Notifications” tab. This will allow you to adjust what time you will receive your notification that the bus has crossed into a specific location.
