PGCPS is using the StopFinder mobile app to allow parents, guardians and caregivers to view information about their child’s bus schedule and where a child’s bus is and to receive notifications about where the bus is.
The StopFinder app is fully integrated with PGCPS routing software, GPS and other communications tools to ensure accurate, real-time data.
Some features of the app include:
The StopFinder school bus app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play. Families must have an up-to-date email address in SchoolMax to activate the subscription. If a family's email address in SchoolMax is not current, the app will not work as the student schedule will not populate.
Please note that parents and guardians must set up a geo alert within the app to receive notifications about where the bus is and when it is near. Instructions on how to set up a geoalert can be found in the video below.
