Turner Transportation is excited to share that all buses are now equipped with technology that will allow parents to track their student’s bus and receive notifications about the bus location. Please know that this technology is new for several of our drivers, and we ask for your patience as our drivers familiarize themselves with it. In coming weeks, we will have student swipe cards that will allow parents to see when students get on and off the bus. Once these cards arrive, schools will distribute them to bus riders.

This bus tracking technology has been in the works for the past year, and it is our belief that families will find it to be beneficial. As always, if you have any questions or need assistance getting your student(s) linked in the Ride 360 app, please call us at 913-288-3700. We encourage you to watch the below videos to learn more about how to download the Ride 360 app as well as the many features you will find in the app, including phone notifications for when the bus is nearing your stop.
