Bus tracking tool gives parents peace of mind

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

With the swipe of a bus pass, Denver Public Schools students are answering the often-asked parent question, “Did my child get on the bus today?” Denver joins other districts in Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, and North Carolina trying to improve safety by using a system that tracks when and where students get on and off buses.

Each Denver Public Schools bus will be equipped with a kiosk where students swipe their pass before they get on or off. The date, time, and location are recorded on the same, secure, web-based program parents are already using to check children’s homework and test scores.
