App helps parents keep tabs on school buses

from WPRI-TV

For many students, a morning spent waiting out at the bus stop in the elements — wind, rain, cold and snow — is part of the school day routine. Now, a new mobile application hopes to change the waiting game by allowing some Rhode Island parents to connect to the buses their children are riding. The app SafeStop lets parents know exactly when a bus will arrive by connecting parents and school officials to the bus as it's tracked by global positioning systems, or GPS. When a school district signs up for the service the application sends out messages and alerts to parents who download it, letting them know about delays, perhaps a change in bus number and even a substitute driver on their child's route. more
