‘Here Comes the Bus’ App
Now Available for Strongsville City Schools Families
to Track Daily Transportation Information


Strongsville, OH (October 5, 2020) - Last year, Strongsville City Schools purchased and installed GPS on its entire fleet of buses and have now completed the testing of a new app for the District which will allow families to monitor daily transportation information. The Here Comes the Bus app is now available to families with students who utilize Strongsville City Schools transportation. The app and complementary website, available on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, or personal computer, enables parents to see the location of their child’s school bus on its daily route. Additional highlights of Here Comes the Bus include:   

  • Notifications sent to a phone or computer (text messages and/or email) which alerts families when their bus is approaching the bus stop
  • Notifications sent updating families on any daily bus number changes
  • Customizable features for different devices, depending on how parents are viewing the app/website 

“Being able to add GPS to our fleet of buses and offering the Here Comes the Bus app to the families in our District is a positive upgrade for transportation in our District. This app and website provides another layer of security for our students and families, while also leading to greater efficiencies for our bus drivers,” said Mr. Stephen Breckner, Operations Manager for Strongsville City Schools.
