Do you like waiting in the cold mornings for your bus to come? Obviously not, that's why there is the MyBusVue app. This app tracks the location of your bus telling you how far it is. The app is available to download for free on both Apple and Android phones. With this app you can add multiple routes, stops, and schools, like for example having one for the morning bus and one for after school.
With this app you can set notifications for when the bus is nearby and get instant emails. This app emails you when the bus is seven minutes away, two minutes away, and when the bus has arrived at your stop. Another feature this app has is Z Pass, this feature (depending on your school) allows you to swipe in when you enter and exit the bus. With Z Pass, parents would get a notification on their phone when the kids swipe in. Overall, this convenient app is made to help students plan their arrival and departure by knowing exactly when the bus will arrive.
