Where's My School Bus? is a location information app allowing parents to track their child’s bus in real time.
Built during the 2011 Fellowship year for the City of Boston by Joel Mahoney, Karla Macedo and Talin Salway, Where’s My School Bus offers real-time school bus tracking for parents.
A student’s bus is displayed on a detailed map, showing both its recent and current location. Waiting at the stop for a late bus? Blizzard got traffic moving at a crawl? Use your smartphone or computer to instantly check the bus location. Tracking your student’s bus has never been easier, faster or more accurate.
