Tyler Drive Scan Card Ridership

The Snohomish School District is introducing new transportation technology to its fleet to improve student safety. Our buses have been equipped with an automated vehicle location system and audio directions to guide the bus driver to each stop safely and efficiently.

As part of this system, Central students received their scan cards this week and Emerson students will be receiving their scan cards on Monday, which will act as their ID when riding the bus. The scan card will help to accelerate the process of checking students on and off each bus and ensuring the safety of every child. Please remind your student to keep their ID attached to their backpack.

For more information about this new transportation system, please see the flyer below.

Traversa Ride 360

Traversa Ride 360 provides secure, up-to-date access to student bus schedule/routing information and specifics. Traversa Ride 360 provides quick access to your child's bus schedule/routing information, which can include the bus stop, route, and bus number. This is accessible on mobile devices, and confidential and secure. This program can be accessed via the web or mobile app and is free to download and use. The user guide can be downloaded by clicking one of the links below:

Parents/guardians need to use their student ID# (include the initial 0 if there is one) and student date of birth to add their student to the app.
