Venus ISD utilizes the "Hear Comes the Bus" system and App to provide parents and students with transportation notifications.
Be aware that this system is currently being install throughout the bus fleet. At this time, some buses are not capable of generating notifications. We appreciate your patience as we integrate this system.
Here Comes the Bus
All parents and guardians of bus riders are invited to use the "Here Comes the Bus" app, available for free on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store. Follow the steps below to set it up and begin receiving transportation notifications for your child.
Download and install the app on your mobile device
Open the app and choose Sign Up
Enter 84416 for the School Code, and confirm that you are registering for Venus ISD
Enter your name, email address, and password to create your account
Enter your "device name"
Choose the Students icon in the app
Enter and submit your child's name and Student ID Number (the Student ID Number is a six digit number, and can be found on their ID Card)
Choose Notifications and edit the Notification Radius and Notification Rules to suite your needs
You will receive notifications based on the radius and rules that you choose.
Be aware that if you choose to receive notifications when your student "scans" on and off the bus, this is dependent on your child scanning their ID Card when they enter and exit the bus. If a student forgets to scan their ID, you will not receive accurate notifications.
