Stopfinder Parent Engagement App Tutorial

Stopfinder is the all-in-one parent engagement app designed by parents for parents to keep you in the know. Receive bus location and messages, updates, and alerts in real-time.

To use the Stopfinder app, the district must have your email address on file with their student information system (SIS). If your school district uses Stopfinder, you will receive an invitation email from your district providing access to the Stopfinder app (see sample email below).  Email addresses and other contact information can be updated through the OneView parent portal

With Stopfinder, you will:

    1. Know the schedule of your child’s bus
    2. Receive push notifications related to your child’s bus schedule and any changes
    3. Get real-time information on the location of your child’s bus by creating your own alert zones with the upgrade to GeoAlerts
    4. Notice bus substitutions because they are clearly indicated – reducing misinformation and confusion
    5. Track multiple buses, a great feature if your children don’t ride the same bus
    6. Know exactly when your children arrive at school or at home
    7. Enjoy two-way communication with the transportation office
    8. Provide parents and caregivers with multilingual options in the app

Additional information can be found on StopFinder's FAQ page.
