Speaking of Chancellor Banks, he just recently announced the launch of the NYC School Bus App that allows parents to see where their child’s bus is in real time. Families with students in grades K-12 who utilize the city’s yellow bus service can sign up for the app:

  • Make sure you have activated your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA)
  • Have your student’s nine-digit ID number on hand
  • Download the NYC School Bus App from your device’s mobile application store
