NEW APP TRACKS SCHOOL BUSES
White Plains City School District, in partnership with its pupil transportation provider, National Express, has implemented a GPS bus tracking system, effective January 9th. The Durham Bus Tracker will allow parents/guardians to view the location of their child’s school bus and see information about the route, with scheduled and estimated arrival times. Each vehicle is equipped with GPS technology and will provide information in real time.
Instructions have been sent to families on how to download the app and create a secure account using the child’s student ID number. The app will provide valuable information on changes in vehicles, substitute drivers and schedule delays. The district will also continue the practice of notifying parents/guardians of any busing updates through K-12 Alerts.
