Bus Tracker Q&A

  • This page will be populated with questions as they arise. 

    Q: How do I follow a bus in the Parent Portal Lite App?

    A: In order to get started, you must receive a registration code, which will be provided by Framingham Public Schools. This code is specific to one or more buses in the district. Go to the DISTRICTS tab, tap the plus sign (+) in the top right to add your registration code. When the code is accepted, you will see the name of your district and the number of buses (initially zero) that you are following. You might need to add another registration code for sny additional buses that you follow. For example, some children have a different AM or PM bus stop.

    Q: What does the date and time stamp mean on the map?

    A: The last reported time for the school bus is displayed beside the bus icon
    NOTE: App users should understand if the bus location has not been reported for a while, there could be problems with the GPS signal or other communications issues. Students should report to their bus stop at the usual time, at least 5 minutes before the expected arrival of the bus. The time display is important information to help parents correctly interpret the Where’s My Bus information.
