Soon the kids will be going back to school and you will worry when they get on and off the bus. Now there is an app so you can track where they are when they are on the bus to and from school.In a little over a week, most parents in the Capital Region will be putting their kids on the bus to go to school. In the past, you would just send them off and then wait until they came home later in the day. Now you will be able to track where their bus is in real time.

According to News 10 ABC, there is a brand new mobile app that you can download to your phone that will track where your child's bus is. The Durham Bus company which serves most of the Capital Region schools, has a new app available that not only tracks the bus but gives information and scheduled arrival times.

The app is password protected that is verified through your child's school issued ID number. The bus tracker is free and available for both Iphone and Android phones. For instructions and to download the app, click HERE.
