Versatrans My Stop Bus Tracking
Our district is introducing new technology to its school bus fleet to increase the safety of its students and improve communication about their location with a solution called Tyler Drive, which includes the Versatrans My Stop App. Tyler Drive helps drivers focus on the road, manages student location information and provides oversight of this important part of your child’s day. It also provides for real-time data that can be used to improve transportation, route accuracy and predictability of bus arrival and departure.
Tyler Drive is a system that includes software and a tablet mounted near the school bus driver that provides drivers with turn-by-turn directions to each stop on their route and manages student ridership, which is reported in real-time back to your district’s transportation office.
Additionally, instead of downloading the My Stop App, you can use the web-based version (linked here). Use the instructions above for how to login.
Helpful Information for Using the My Stop App
This app is intended to be used to estimate a student's travel time and GPS location along the scheduled route. If the bus is sitting, waiting to load or unload, is stuck in traffic or has to take a detour, the estimated arrival time may not be accurate. This app can also be inaccurate if a substitute bus is used. Please use this system only as a guide and follow all busing instructions as communicated through Skyward Family Access and our Transportation Department.

Why Versatrans MyStop Bus Tracking?
Tyler Drive guides bus drivers with audio directions leading them to their scheduled stops. This provides a safer solution to navigation than traditional paper route sheets. Tyler Drive can also provide visual directions. The tablet is mounted so that it does not block the driver’s view of the windshield or mirrors.
Real-Time Access for Parents
The Versatrans My StopTM mobile app for Apple and Android devices can help ensure that your students never miss the bus again. This app uses the GPS in Tyler Drive to let users know when to expect their bus each day. Search your device's app store for “Versatrans My Stop” to register.
Safety, Security, Visibility
Our district is focused on providing safe transportation for its students. The Tyler Drive system will not only enable us to maintain our ongoing commitment to safety, but will also provide parents and guardians with information needed to feel secure and informed.
