UDOT’s Walking School Bus app is a forward thinking app that allows parents to create and plan walks to and from school. UDOT’s Walking School Bus app allows Utah parents to search by elementary school for existing walking groups, create walking groups and invite neighbors to join, plan walks to and from school, assign parent leaders to walk with students, group text within the app, and greatest of all, alerts parents when students have arrived safely at school!
“Walking School Bus” is a universal term used to describe an organized group of children walking to and from school with one or more adults. It’s like a carpool — without the car!
The Walking School Bus app is sponsored by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Student Neighborhood Access Program (SNAP)™ which is a fun and comprehensive program for walking and biking safely to school that engages and educates students, parents, school administrators, crossing guards and communities.

Needs a lot of improving
Very confusing user interface, non-existent back buttons. I keep getting stuck on the page where I have to select district and school with no back button. Even when I close the app down it sometimes reopens to that page. Finally got things set up with our group, we'll see how it functions.
Cumbersome and buggy
Has potential, but needs work. Back buttons don't always show up, leaving you to close the app and re-open to get back to the start. Getting consistent errors when I try to mark a walk as completed. Navigation isn't very intuitive.
App needs to be simplified
There are way too many steps (no pun intended) to get where you need to go. It's very confusing. I feel overwhelmed every time I open this app. Please make it more user friendly. I get what your trying to do, and that this app could really be something great, but it's got way to much. It needs to be simplified.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
