App 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!***
  • Not accurate

    By upset mom1
    The location of the bus is not updated in real time. I set up the app to notify me when the bus is 2 miles away. I walked outside as soon as I received the alert but not 1 minute later, I got another alert saying the bus had arrived before I even reached the stop. I continued to walk to the stop anyway because I thought there’s no way the bus drove two miles in less than a minute. I reached the stop and I wait another 7 or 8 mins. I then come to the conclusion that maybe the time was a few minutes off and I missed the bus. I started to panic. I started to run back to my apartment to call the school and in the distance, I hear the school bus pulling up. I started running back to the bus stop as fast as I good but the bus pulled off with my 5 year old still inside. They took her back to the school. I will never depend on this app again.
  • This is the app I've been waiting to have!

    By Procrastinated balancing
    Our school system started using this app a few days ago. It's the app I'd hoped to have a few years ago. It shows me where my kids' buses are, real-time, both before and after they get on. I can tell if a bus will be late in the a.m. and opt to take my child to school. Likewise, in the p.m. if the bus is late getting to the school, I know that as well. I hope that if the buses are stuck in traffic or behind an accident later, I'll KNOW that now, and see where they are. It will give me options. If your school system uses this, download it. Plus, it's oddly mesmerizing to watch the bus arrow drive the route =)
  • Useless app

    By 003allstar
    This app is good In theory but the implementation of it is terrible. The app does not update in real time with the location of the bus. It takes a few days to update a bus change. I have had messages sent to me hours after the bus has picked up or dropped off my children. I have called the school and the department of transportation for the county and they both stated that the app doesn’t work properly, they don’t control the app, and not to rely on the app. I installed the app because it was the recommended app by the county. It was on the bus card that was mailed out before school started. Now that school has started and issues have started to appear, nobody wants to take ownership on fixing it. I have removed this app from my phone and started calling the school for updates. That works a lot better than this app!!!
  • Makes my phone restart

    By phm mom
    I would have to say this app is awesome 97% of the time. Love being able to see where the bus is for my 1st grader and my seniors. Especially in northern Indiana where the weather is so unpredictable. My only issue is just about every day it causes my phone to restart. At first I thought it was my phone but it only happens when I’m using this app. Some times it happens in between elementary & high school. It really irks me when it happens in the critical time when bus is getting close and takes 2-3 min to be able to pull it back up. Anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it? (iPhone 6 plus). Thank you
  • Swing and a Miss!!

    By Mharris50
    I really wanted to love this app, but the school has the wrong stops listed for my student and it’s been a nightmare trying to correct it. It’s almost a month in to the school year and we have not had success getting the bus stop corrected. Basically we were not able to really integrate the app into our routine & schedule. Because of hassle and inaccurate bus stop we really don’t need to use it now. If the app would have allowed parents to change a bus stop and let the school “approve” it ; that would have worked much better. I understand this problem is not a developer issue but the app managers should influence the school’s policies for adding or correcting a bus stop. At a minimum allow parents to add an overlay of the correct bus number and the ability to mute the assigned stop if it’s wrong.
  • This is great. Now I don’t leave the house so early

    By LA GATA 1
    I can Trace the bus and coordinate my time also. Without been at bus stop two hours waiting. BUT! It needs to improve when it’s expected to get to the stops. Yesterday it was way off getting to our bus time according to the app. The bus got here over 59 minutes earlier. This is my only concern! Thank you! I need to be able to trust it’s time so I don’t miss the bus and pick up my child on time, it’s a very lonely stop! God bless and thank you! Continue with the notices before bus arrival to the stop this is great. I know it will improve in time.
  • 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.
  • Really helpful app!

    By Sarah in Riverdale Park
    This app has already made a huge difference in my morning schedule. Now I know when my son’s bus is going to arrive, which makes it easier for us to be ready and waiting when we need to be. It would be fantastic if we could have notifications of when our children are dropped off at their schools as well! And for students who are being educated at schools that are outside of the district boundaries it would be nice if we could enter an address for the school that is outside district boundaries.
