District 202 parents will be able to use a new mobile app to track their kids’ school buses in real time starting this Monday, April 23, 2018.The new app follows a year of work between the district’s transportation and technology departments and First Student, District 202’s general education transportation contractor.District 202 contends with several major transportation logistical challenges because of its size, numerous grade-level train intersections, and condensed, “triple tier” schedule.The triple tier system was implemented during the recession to save money.

Data bases have been created for each bus route and corresponding list of riders. These data bases are updated nightly.Visit http://www.psd202.org... for details.#202proud
