Here Comes the Bus
A New App for Roosevelt School District No. 66 Parents and Students
The Roosevelt School District No. 66 is happy to announce the adoption of an innovative mobile device app and website entitled, Here Comes the Bus®.
Here Comes the Bus and Student Ridership are bus and student tracking software tools that help keep you informed and your children safe as they travel to and from home and school on the school bus.
With Student Ridership, your child will use their student ID card or the Here Comes the Bus app on their smartphone to scan as they board or exit the bus, or the bus driver may log them in. This gives us AND you the comfort of knowing your child got on the right bus, and off at the right stop.
This easy-to-use technology is free to you for the 2018-19 school year. Simply download the Here Comes the Bus app, create a secure account, add your students and you’re all set!
What will you see with Here Comes the Bus and Student Ridership?
- Real-time location of your child’s bus on a map
- Scheduled and actual bus arrival times at home and school
- Confirmation that your child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both

- Push notification* and email alert when:
