Transportation

The BCS Transportation Department will be using a new parent app, Stopfinder, for the upcoming school year. Stopfinder is the easy to use, all-in-one app that allows you to have the most accurate information about your student’s bus schedule at any time from anywhere. In addition to displaying your student’s transportation information, Stopfinder features a private messaging feature that will allow you to communicate directly with the BCS Transportation Dept. 

The email address that is currently on file with the district will be used for Stopfinder setup. 

Stopfinder can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. Stopfinder will require an invite and registration through the district prior to accessing your student’s transportation schedule. 

Please watch this video for a sneak peak. Your invitation to Stopfinder will be sent soon!
