How to Find Out About Bus Delays and Cancellations

Published February 6, 2020

During a winter storm event that caused significant bus cancellations on February 6, 2020, the Delays and Cancellations section of did not function properly. We apologize for this inconvenience. The failure was due to software updates, despite developer and Tri-Board testing multiple times. While we are confident the issues will be resolved, we acknowledge there is no way to guarantee that issues with technology will not arise in the future.

We therefore encourage our school bus community to embrace the use of multiple channels for receiving this information, rather than solely depending on visiting the Delays and Cancellations section of our website. There are a number of ways to receive bus delay/cancellation information:

  • Click here for the IOS app
  • Click here for Android app

All these alternatives to the website are available and were operating on February 6, 2020. If you rely on school bus information, we recommend using more than one type of the above channels to ensure accurate and timely notification of future bus delays and/or cancellations.
