Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Bus Status getting a new app?

Mobile app technology is constantly moving forward, and it was time to create an even faster, more reliable experience for Bus Status users. Bus Status 4 will have the same features and functionality as the current Bus Status App. The changes are almost exclusively under-the-hood updates that will result in increased speed and reliability. 

How much longer will users be able to use Bus Status 3?

After September 29, bus statuses will no longer appear in the Bus Status 3 App.

When will Bus Status 4 be available to download?

Parents and students can download Bus Status 4 right now! The current App (Bus Status 3) will be removed from the stores. There will only ever be one version of the Bus Status App available to download.

How will someone know what Bus Status App they have?

Bus Status 4 will feature a different colour for the app icon (see photo below). The Bus Status 4 App icon is a yellow bus on a white background. 

Users can also check the version of their app by opening the app, tapping on “District” in the bottom right, and viewing the App Version listed there. Version 3.0.9 will be retired in September 2023 and version 4.0.0 is the new version that will continue to be supported.
