Groveport Madison Schools announced a new service for families whose children are transported to and from its schools daily using district-provided school buses.
The district’s school bus partner, Petermann Transportation, developed a phone and web browser application that allows parents and guardians to securely view the location of their child’s bus location in relationship to the child’s school and his/her assigned bus stop. It can be used to track buses for multiple children in the same family.
Parents and guardians can view multiple stops on an assigned bus route, including the scheduled arrival time for each stop. This service is free of charge to parents/guardians and has been provided by Petermann Transportation at no additional cost to the school district. Its use is completely voluntary.
The app provides close to real-time bus locations and information, including the scheduled arrival time of your student’s bus.
District officials said Bus Tracker is not designed to take the place of your child being at the designated bus stop 10 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. In addition, the Bus Tracker may not to be used to pick-up your child at a location other than the assigned bus stop. The bus drivers will let students off only at their assigned stop.
For information call the Communications Office, at 614-492-2520, or your child’s school.
