Stopfinder Mobile App
Introducing the Stopfinder Mobile App!
Pearland ISD is now using the Stopfinder mobile app to provide bus route information and important announcements and updates about bus service.
Parents and guardians will receive an email inviting them to subscribe to their child's bus route schedule. Once subscribed, parents and guardians will be able to see their child's daily bus route schedule and receive push notifications to their mobile device regarding any service-related updates such as delayed routes, road construction impacting service, etc.
The Stopfinder mobile app will be used to communicate:
- bus route delays (in excess of 20 minutes)
- service-related updates
- bus accident notification
- detours and road conditions impacting routes and stops
The Stopfinder mobile app gives parents and guardians the ability to share their child's bus route schedule with other by inviting them to be a subscriber through the app. When shared with others, they will also receive service-related notifications to their mobile device. This empowers parents and guardians to include their child and other caregivers in receiving information updates about bus service.
Only the primary and secondary parent or guardian for each child (as listed in Skyward) will be invited to subscribe to their child's bus route information. No others will be able to request access to your child's information. As the subscriber, YOU have the power to share this access with others as sub-subscribers. Once you grant access, you can manage and disable the access at any time.
If you wish to access the StopFinder app using a different email address than the one on file in Skyward, you will either need to change your email address in Skyward or share the subscription to your new email address from within the StopFinder app. We are unable to manage this for you in the Transprotation Department.
As the app continues to develop, additional features may be added to include:
- 2-Way messaging with the Transportation Department
- Bus stop location pinpointed on a map
- Form completion and submission within the app
