Bus Registration and WheresTheBus App

  • St. Charles Parish Public Schools is excited to share a new, mobile app which will help students and families who utilize bus transportation. It’s called, “Where’s The Bus?” Before downloading the app, families are asked to complete bus registration. 


    When registering for the bus, you must provide the address that your child will use for bus service. You must complete a registration for each child in your household if you want to utilize SCPPS bus transportation.

    The registration process also requires the student ID number. Families can locate the student ID number in the PowerSchool Parent Portal and on the child's report card. If you are unable to locate your child’s student ID number, please contact the Technology Helpdesk at (985) 785-3126.

    When registering for the bus, you will be asked to provide an email address as part of the registration process. This will allow for the system to send you an email confirmation of your registration submission. Please allow a few days to process this registration. Also, please note that bus numbers may change between now and the first day of school. Transportation is assigning buses and will continue to update buses until the start of school.

    Once you register for the bus, please register for the app. The app will also provide the bus number and approximate pick up time.  The app will allow you to have real time information about your child’s bus number and pick up time.  Information will be provided at all school meet and greets prior to the start of school to assist parents with the sign up process if needed.   


    The app uses GPS to track the precise location of your child’s school bus in real time, and will be available for the 2022-2023 school year!

    By using this app on your phone, you will know if the bus is running late in the morning or afternoon. You will also know when the bus is approaching the bus stop and when the bus is on its way home! This will assist and provide better service to families on bus arrival and departure times.

    The app is free for both Apple and Android Devices, and keeps your personal information secured.

    To sign up:

    1.     Go to www.WheresTheBus.com

    2.     Look for the “Parents” Section on the left, and click on the “Set Up Account” button.

    3.     Select St. Charles Parish Public Schools from the drop down menu.

    4.     Enter Parent and Student Information.

    5.     Await further instructions in your emails once your information has been validated.

    We are excited to offer this new feature to our students and families, and we hope you take advantage of this new advancement from the St. Charles Parish Public Schools’ Transportation Department!
