Introducing Versatrans My Stop™ App: Mobile Access to Real Time Bus Info
Northwest Local Schools Transportation is working with Versatrans My Stop ™ which provides mobile access to live bus information. This app displays real time updates with the location of the user's assigned school bus, as well as push notifications for users and the estimated time of arrival to their stop.
