    My Stop App

    Transportation has a new tool that allows you to view the estimated time of arrival for your bus. Download the Versatrans My Stop app for Apple or Android.

    GPS technology allows families to approximate the location of their school buses and the estimated time of arrival for a specific stop. (Data on the app refreshes every 5 minutes.) It is possible that your bus could arrive at the stop before the estimated arrival time because of the time it takes the system to refresh. As a reminder, buses are subject to early or late arrivals based on several factors including traffic, stop lights, inclement weather and more. We always encourage riders to arrive at their stop early to ensure getting on the bus. 

    Students should arrive at their bus stop at least five minutes early.

    Logging into the app

    1. Download the app. Versatrans My Stop is available for Apple or Android.
