To See the Bus Information and Follow the Route:

  • Once you have added all of your students, you can view their transportation information. Each student will have a separate login icon.
  • You can click on "My Students" to display the following information:
    • School
    • Bus number
    • Bus route number
    • Bus stop location, and
    • Pick-up and drop-off time for each student
  • You can click on "My Bus Stops" to follow the bus live via GPS. Please note that there is an approximately 60-second delay from the time the GPS signal leaves the bus and updates on a cellular device. Plan accordingly.

To Allow Others to See Your Student's Bus:

If you would like to share your student's bus information with another person (i.e., spouse, sitter, grandparents), go to My Students and press the Share icon. This will allow you to share the Ride 360 link with anyone you choose.

Please note that using the sharing option allows your designee to see your student's ID number, address, and other information stored on the app.
