Richland One parents and guardians will be able to get notifications about their children’s bus route on their phone now. Richland One Student Transportation Services will roll out the Traversa Ride 360 mobile app on Monday, January 22.
Traversa Ride 360 is a secure app provided by the South Carolina Department of Education. The app will allow a parent or guardian to have instant access to their child’s school bus transportation information through a real-time GPS tracker.
Parents and guardians will access the free app by searching for “Traversa Ride 360” in the App Store (Apple iOS) or Google Play for Android. They will need to install the app and register in the app. When asked to find a school district, they must search for Richland County School District One.
Through the app, parents will be sent an alert of the estimated time of arrival (ETA) of their child’s bus. The district can also send important and timely push notifications through the app, such as notifying parents of a late bus, the use of a substitute bus or a bus accident. Parents must stay logged in to the app to receive push notifications from Student Transportation Services in real time.
HOW TO REGISTER STUDENTS IN APP
Parents/guardians must use their child’s student ID number and date of birth (YYYY-MM-DD) to add their child in the app. This is necessary to log in to the app each time. Parents/guardians will follow the same steps for additional students in the family. Also, parents will control with whom they want to share their child’s information, such as another family member that may be assisting with child care, for example. The school sites are not responsible for keeping up with this information.
