With the Implementation of GPS and bus passes, the Yankton School District is pleased to introduce an app for your smartphone or tablet called Here Comes the Bus. With Here Comes the Bus (HCTB) you and your children will now know when your bus is approaching your stop or pick up location based on preferences for notifications you set within the app. You can also set a notification for when your child(ren) scan on or off the bus.
With Here Comes the Bus:
Get real-time information on the exact location of your child's bus
Track multiple buses if your children don't all ride the same bus
Know exactly when your children arrive at school, or at the bus stop
Your account password is protected
Please note that there may be intermittent outages that will affect the data relayed. All students should be at the bus stop at their designated time regardless of the HCTB tracking information.
Students may use this app. as their digital scan on their smartphones instead of a bus pass.
To get started using the HCTB app:
1. Download the Here Comes the Bus app from Google Play for Android or App Store for Apple products.
2. Enter school code 84104 and click "Next" followed by "Confirm".
3. Complete the "User Profile" box.
4. Under "My Students," click "Add". Enter the student's last name and student ID Number. Your student's ID Number will be found on the bottom of his/her YSD Bus Pass.
This feature is not yet available on SPED buses.
