Here comes the Bus App Is Now Available!!!

The Cobb Schools Transportation Department transports more than 70,000 students via about 1,000 school buses every day. Now every parent will know exactly where the specific bus carrying their child is at on the route to and from school.  In addition to giving scheduled and actual arrival times for home and school, the app will also provide push and email notifications when the bus is near. So, thanks to the bus app, Cobb parents will know when the bus enters their neighborhood. You can customize when you want to receive the alert from 250 yards to 2 miles away.

To ease stress in the mornings and afternoons, download the bus app in the Apple App Store or on Google Play, or visit herecomesthebus.com.  You must have a student enrolled in a CCSD school to use the service. Your account is secure and password protected.  Use CCSD's school code of 87881 during sign up.
