Here Comes the Bus

 

Here Comes the Bus logoKnow when your child's bus is arriving at the convenience of your fingertips! The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) is using the Here Comes the Bus program to increase safety and cost savings in regards to the school bus fleet.  With this app, parents/guardians will know when your child's bus is arriving and departing from the bus stop. Precarious Indiana weather can cause slower traffic, which can sometimes cause buses to run behind on schedule.  Now students can stay in their warm, dry home until it is time to head to their bus stop.  Parents/guardians can receive notices when the bus is near your home, personalized to the distance you choose.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation (MVCSC) Transportation Department will be installing the program a few buses at a time.  When your student's bus is active and Here Comes the Bus is live/available for your student, the bus driver will send home a flyer with each student.  We will also list the active buses to the right on this website page.
