App Reviews

  • Lost Info= re-login/re-load to FIX!!

    By danocamera
    This app has been a godsend this entire school year! Everything was working nicely until the most recent update; all of my info (bus, school and bus stop icons) disappeared and I got a message saying the map info “wasn’t available” when I tried to adjust the notification radius. Everything was fine on the website, it was just the app that was screwy. I came here to see if anyone else was having this problem and just as I saw that it was mentioned in several other reviews, I got a Notification that my son’s bus was in the designated range. I checked the app and there were still no icons so I deleted it and immediately re-downloaded it. After I signed in, everything is working as expected! I bet if I had just logged out and logged back in, everything would have been fine too. Hopefully this can help other users and save you from unwarranted negative reviews!
  • Good app- cool idea

    By Jenylu72
    This is a good app for what it is intended for, to give a general idea on where the bus is. It shouldn't be used to determine when you should meet the bus (I wouldn't even think of doing that). Helpful to us to know when her bus is coming since several others pick up at the same location around the same time (express stop). Very cool knowing when the bus is near her express drop off at home, gives me an idea on when to expect her to let me know she is home since she has a mile walk to the house. Would LOVE notifications sent via text instead of email... overall this is a cool app!! *** updated: you do get a direct bus update if you have the actual app and don't just use through PWCS. Love this app!***
  • Much better!!!...only 1 wish! 🤞🏽

    By Jdjosoxidjsjsisjbjfjsoqps
    I reports issues to the app company & within a matter of just a couple of a day they responded directly to me, appreciated my feedback & assured me that they would do whatever they could to fix the issues & in a matter of just a couple days the issues where fixed! That’s outstanding!!! Thank you! just one wish??? #FingersCrossed 1.)What a great safety feature it would be if the student could scan their bus pass as they entered into the Bus at their pickup location & departed the Bus, showing their exact pickup & drop off location!
  • Makes my mornings so much easier

    By Idohair4u
    We live in the country (rural area) and have a long driveway. By setting the parameters to 2 miles, I get a text message when the bus enters that area. This lets me know that it's time to send the kids out the door. It's especially helpful during rain and cold weather (we haven't quite got there yet!), since I don't want them just standing out there in the weather for a long period if time. If you actually pull up the "map" section in the app, you can literally watch as the bus is making its way to you.
  • Mixed Feelings

    By MD3495
    This worked so well last year and I was so happy. However, this year the map has been stuck and I do not see where the bus is at all. It is a new bus so I cannot rely on the perfection of last year, but I have spent more time waiting for a bus because I don’t know where it is. After the signal was replaced in the bus, this app has proved itself as it did last year. I cannot thank you enough for the security it has provided for me and my child. Thank you sooo much for your birthday investment in this system. It means the world to my son and me.
  • There’s always a problem with this app!

    By Mrsfarmer16
    I depend on this app to work because Metro Transportation always has substitute drivers and they don’t let the parents know when they do. Therefore the buses are NEVER picking up or dropping off their kids at at their stops. So I wish this app would actually work. When it does it’s absolutely wonderful. Before this current update and the one before it the app was finally working again with no issues, then the update was sent out and it doesn’t give me any information. If I go to the map my sons school doesn’t show up and neither does his bus. It tells me there is no information available for his AM or PM bus. PLEASE fix this app before the beginning of the next school year.
  • Helpful app

    By elizabennett
    This app has been very useful and reliable in letting me know when my daughter's bus is arriving. I set it to notify me when the bus is within a two-mile radius, which is the longest option (and the only really helpful one). I wouldn't stick around at home, just waiting for the notification. But it is a good way to be sure we are not running late, and to know that everything is going normally and on schedule with her bus. I definitely recommend it.
  • Great app when it works

    By Mesclin
    The idea of the app is nice; however the execution is less than that. The app routinely crashes with web timeout errors. The map feature seldom updates the actual location of the bus and it takes me exiting out and reopening in order for it to show me the location. Many times the map feature shows the bus in the next neighborhood only to look outside and it’s sitting at my corner waiting. I have the notifications turned on and configured to push to my phone...but zero notifications show. This app is completely worthless. The developers have a solid idea, and it’s wonderful WHEN it works but it hasn’t worked reliably ever.
  • Love it!

    By Wendy Flo
    I love how you can see the bus when in route. I know when the bus is near or when delayed. I also love the notifications I get when the bus is substituted by another bus, it provides me with the bus number and delays. I read some reviews on how the app doesn’t work for them. I wonder if it has to do with the phone capability. I have an apple 7 and been using the app since school started this year and so far I haven’t had any issues.
  • Nothing works

    By arw981
    The information I enter never seems to save. I tried editing my notifications and the buttons don’t work. I tried changing the bus radius and that didn’t save. I generally get notification as the bus pulls up which isn’t useful at all. Now every time I go to the home page, it asks me for my device name so I basically can’t navigate around the app without entering it over and over, because (again) it doesn’t save. This feels more like a half baked prototype than an app a large school system should be using. Because it’s so buggy, I don’t trust the information it provides. At this point, I just want it to stop spamming my email.
