Bus Status App

What is it?  It's an app that can be downloaded to smart devices to be notified of bus delays or cancellations within WCPS.

How does it work?  When a bus driver radios Transportation to notify them of a route delay is notified of a delayed bus route the information is posted on the WCPS website, it also posts to the associated school website and a notification is sent to anyone who has the bus status app downloaded on their device and they have indicated a particular bus as a favorite in the app.  This is also the case when a bus route or routes are cancelled.

Who can use it?  The Bus Status App is for all parents, students and staff with smart devices.  

What's the cost?  There is no cost to users.  WCPS pays the annual subscription cost.
