The Versatrans My Stop mobile app provides access to bus information and student ridership data. My Stop accesses GPS data and gives parents and guardians secure access to information on where their child’s school bus is and what time it is expected to be at their stop. My Stop also provides notifications when a student scans on or off the bus, or when the bus is late leaving the garage. School districts can also send mass notifications to all subscribed users to inform them of general information such as school delays and closings.
Versatrans My Stop is only available to families in school districts that use Versatrans to manage student transportation. Ask your district if they provide their parents with access to Versatrans My Stop.
Ratings and Reviews
Helpful, but could be better
For the parents rating the app 2 stars, call your school’s transportation department and let them know. My second kids info was put in wrong by the secretary at school and it was fixed immediately.
I do like the app, but having it less than a month, I can see other features that should be on the app.
Why no spilt screen? Parents with multiple kids don’t always take the same bus or school. I have two boys who attend two different schools and take two different busses. While the leave around the same time, their arrival times home are up to 30 minutes apart.
What about broken down busses are reroutes? Today my son was 25 min past his usual arrival time as someone failed to board the bus and the driver turned around to pick them up.
It’d be wonderful if the driver could call into the transpo dept and let them know. It doesn’t need to be specific. A general “relay” button flashing on my spilt screen would help. Or in the issue of mechanical problems, a parent could be notified.
Basic operation is okay, far from great
This app serves its purpose to let me see where the bus is. I understand that the county can decides to use other features that utilize notifications and our county must not Bc I literally only see where the bus is, and there is a slight delay in that.
My biggest complaint, is that having elem and middle schoolers, I can’t link them and see they while logged into the same account. So I take my 2 elem boys (log in for them) to the bus then have to log out and log in for my middle schooler to see his bus which comes next. Then repeat in the afternoon, which involves logging out first of middle schooler so I can log in for elem kids. Then switch again. Versatrans please fix this! Lots of parents complaining at our school about it. Lots of us have kids at more than one school, or most of us will at some point. In 2 yrs, I’ll have kids at 3 schools on 3 diff buses.
As far as basic operation though, the app serves its purpose and I can see where the bus is and it’s estimated arrival time. Was super helpful when the bus broke down once.
While our school doesn’t seem to use all the features, like scanning on and off the bus, this app has been a big help. Especially one day when my son left his sports gear bag on the bus when coming home for a long weekend. After a few minutes of panic when he came in the door without it, I could pull up this app and see that his bus was now sitting at the neighborhood elementary school waiting for it’s next run. We drove over and met the bus (the driver was shocked that we’d found him!) and got the bag. This app saved the day!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
