SafeStop™ is the mobile app that connects parents and school officials to the vehicles transporting their students. The app allows users to view the location of their student’s school bus, see Estimated Arrival Times for the bus’s arrival at their stop, and receive Alerts & Messages from the school or transportation provider, all in real-time! This app is the definitive answer to every parent’s question: “Where’s the bus?”

Needs work


I like the idea, but it is poorly implemented.

The app is advertised as doing real-time bus tracking, but this is a lie. It looks like the app downloads the latest known location of the bus every 20 to 30 seconds or so from a server somewhere. However, it seems the bus uploads it’s location much less frequently, maybe every 2 to 4 minutes or so. So while the map may show the bus being on the other side of the neighborhood, it is actually pulling to a stop on your street. This is not real-time and it completely kills the use case.

Shame on you for ripping off cash strapped school districts with this crap.



I gave one star for the concept but don't waste your time! The bus on the map never moved, the times were so inaccurate that I had no clue when to send my kid out which caused more anxiety. It never showed where my kid was on the route or when they arrived at school which was the whole point right? Go the old fashioned way and send them 10 minutes before scheduled time and wait. This app needs to be scrapped and rebuilt.

Needs to be rewritten to be useful


Marketing got way ahead of this one. The app has a significant refresh lag, inaccurate positioning, and clumsy interface. Adding and removing stops is a sad joke and the registration process is just weird. Too bad because there is a genuine need for this and adoption would be easy. Also there is a an opportunity for messaging between parents and bus dispatching for various coordination needs.
