Frequently Asked Questions about Here Comes the Bus  

What is Here Comes The Bus and why might I need it?
Here Comes the Bus is an easy-to-use website and app that enables you to see the location of your child’s school bus on a smartphone, tablet, or personal computer. This way, you know when the bus is near your stop, so you can send your child out at just the right time.

How does it work?
Here Comes the Bus uses a global positioning system (GPS) technology to locate and track your child’s school bus. It is powered by software from Synovia Solutions, who are experts at tracking data, which they’ve been providing to fleet managers across North America for over 15 years.

Is the information private and secure?
Here Comes the Bus uses HTTPS, just like a bank or online store, which means that all communication between your web browser and the site is encrypted and secure.

How much does it cost?
Here Comes the Bus is available at no cost to all families in the Rome City School District.

What is the difference between the mobile app and the website?
The primary difference is how you access the data. The look and feel are different on a mobile device for better on-the-go use. You can use mobile and tablet apps anywhere you can use a mobile device.

Do I need separate accounts for each of my children?
You and your children can access all the information about the buses you need using just one Here Comes the Bus account.
