The All-In-One
Parent Engagement App for School Bus Route & Stop Information

Forget what you’ve heard about so-called “parent apps.” Stopfinder is redefining the term with its easy-to-use, all-in-one parent engagement app designed by parents for parents. Know in real-time where your child’s bus is, the ETA, and have the most accurate information about your child’s bus schedule in the palm of your hand.

[To use the Stopfinder app your school district must have purchased the solution from Transfinder and also sent you (the parent or guardian) an invitation. Until the school district is set up for using the Stopfinder solution, you cannot use the Stopfinder app. Please let your school district know if you want Stopfinder.]

With Stopfinder, you can know where your child’s bus is and when it arrives at school – in real-time!

Keeping Families Informed

Your child’s safety is paramount. And knowledge – and information – is power. And that’s what is at the heart of Stopfinder. No parent, school administrator or bus driver wants to have their children waiting at the bus stop any longer than they need to be – in good or bad weather. None of us want them missing the bus either. Stopfinder is the fully integrated and secure solution for Transfinder clients that truly solves these problems.

We know that having the most current data imbedded in the parent app is critical. We also all know that schedules and plans change for any number of reasons. But receiving those timely updates is crucial for you to not miss a beat.

Stopfinder is all about putting the power in your hands. Our secure and protected app gives you the ability to provide access to trusted guardians or friends for as long or short of a time as you wish.

With Stopfinder, you will:

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

Providing Peace of Mind

With Stopfinder, you gain greater peace of mind as you stay informed on your child’s whereabouts. Plus, your child will be even safer thanks to Stopfinder because now your district can provide you with up-to-date information. No more guessing about where your child’s bus is. Authorized district personnel will keep you in the loop on any changes to your child’s bus schedule or route changes.

Do you have more than one child in the home traveling to different schools at different times? Stopfinder tracks multiple buses so you can know when each child gets on the bus or arrives at school or home.

Wouldn’t you like a notification telling you when your child’s bus is set to arrive at the bus stop? Maybe you’d put off filling that second cup of coffee until after your child is sent out the door to the stop? With Stopfinder you and those you have authorized will now know not just your child’s bus schedule but also define when you want to be notified of your child’s bus traveling through a specific area, an “alert zone” you’ve created . You’ll also know when your child got on the bus.  You can do all this from your smartphone or tablet.

You can either watch this take place in real time or customize Stopfinder to receive notifications and updates. It’s all customizable to fit your daily schedule.

*Requires specific hardware on the bus purchased by the school district.
