Download Transit app to track your trip in real-time! While our goal is to never miss a trip, sometimes we must cancel a trip due to a mechanical issue or unforeseen driver availability. When that happens, you can check Transit App to see if a trip has been cancelled and plan alternate ways to get to school. You’ll know a trip has been cancelled when the departure time has a real-time symbol but it’s turned grey and is crossed out. Click here to see what a cancelled trip looks like in the Transit app.
Students without Wave smart cards will be able to board a bus until Wave cards are distribute to them by their school. Please connect with your school to receive your Wave smart card. If a student has any problems boarding the bus, they should report the issue to Customer Service immediately, including the time, location, and bus number (if possible).
