Here Comes the Bus
A School Bus Tracking App for Parents

The Omaha Public Schools transportation team is happy to announce the launch of a GPS school bus tracking technology that will be available to all parents and guardians of district high school students who ride Student Transportation of America buses with bus stops. This free service will provide OPS families with the ability to track the location of their students’ bus in real-time, either on a computer or a mobile device. Participation is optional.

Tracking Features
