    The district's new bus app, Stopfinder, will launch this week. Families with bus riders can expect to receive an email about registering in the coming days.

    Stopfinder will allow families to view stop locations, add another parent or caregiver to the account and receive push notifications about bus information. A feature allowing families to track the bus on a map will be available later this fall.

    Elementary bus rider families will receive an email Wednesday, August 26. Secondary bus rider familes will receive an email Thursday, August 27. These emails will contain an invitation from Stopfinder that families must activate before downloading the free app. Stopfinder will display student bus information and allow for direct communication with the WCS Transportation Department.

    "We're so excited to launch our new bus app," said WCS Planning and Zoning Manager Allison Nunley. "We believe this new app will allow parents to easily access the information about their child's bus."
