Bus Status is a web-based service and mobile app that allows you to view the status of your student’s bus. You can access Bus Status information from:
The school district website;
Each school’s website; or
A free app available for Apple and Android mobile devices.
Bus Status is a tool for informing families and students about bus delays of 10 minutes or more. Bus Status does not offer real-time GPS bus route monitoring. Be sure to refresh the page on a regular basis in order to see the most up-to-date information.
Please note that even when buses are delayed, students are still responsible for being at the bus stop in order to be transported to school. When school is cancelled due to weather, Bus Status will show that buses are cancelled, too.
Using the web-based Bus Status service
Find the Bus Status button in the footer of the district website or your school's website. (Note: Recommended browsers are Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Some versions of Internet Explorer may not be compatible.)
Open the app and add Osseo Area Schools as your district.
Find your route and double-click on your student’s bus and school abbreviation.
Save that bus as a “Favorite.” You’ll then see your child's bus/children's buses in your Favorite status within the app.
On-time buses appear in green; late buses appear in yellow. For more detail, double-click on the yellow bar to find comments about the delay. Be sure to refresh the page on a regular basis in order to see the most up-to-date information.
Important note: The school district manages the information contained in the app/web-based service but cannot provide technical support for the app/web-based service itself. If you have a question about the information you see in Bus Status, please contact our Transportation Department at 763-391-7244. If you have issues that require tech support for your device (desktop or mobile), please consult the tech support unit for your specific device.
