How do apply for transportation for my student?
Parents may obtain their child's bus information by using any of the methods below:
1) Parents are encouraged to sign-up for Here Comes the Bus (HCTB). HTCB is a school bus tracking app that shows the real-time location of the bus. It provides scheduled and actual arrival times at home and school, as well as push and email notifications when the bus is near your child’s stop. You can access bus information by logging into your “Here Comes the Bus” account or by visiting the website www.herecomesthebus.com and downloading the app from the App Store or Google play and using code 87491 to create an account.
2) PowerSchool Parent Portal - Parents/guardians must sign up to access bus assignment information. To register for the PowerSchool Parent Portal, parents will need their child’s Student ID number (student’s lunch number and NCEdCloud username, which is used for remote learning.)
3) You can also obtain bus information by contacting your child's school.
