The Versatrans My Stop mobile app provides access to bus information and student ridership data. My Stop accesses GPS data and gives parents and guardians secure access to information on where their child’s school bus is and what time it is expected to be at their stop. My Stop also provides notifications when a student scans on or off the bus, or when the bus is late leaving the garage. School districts can also send mass notifications to all subscribed users to inform them of general information such as school delays and closings.
Versatrans My Stop is only available to families in school districts that use Versatrans to manage student transportation. Ask your district if they provide their parents with access to Versatrans My Stop.
Ratings and Reviews
Developers need update this app so it’s accurate
As a parent this was my first day using the app. Login is confusing you need to call the transportation bus company to give you information and a student # to login, then you can change it using app settings. Then for using the app it has a map, scan, and settings seems simple enough yet the map does NOT show the location of the bus enroute it only pins your home location drop off point, then gives an estimated arrival time WHICH IS NOT ACCURATE! This is disappointing considering a parent trying to get to the home location after getting off work and the bus arrives earlier ( for our location it’s off by 6 minutes) than expected! The developers of this app need to make changes to their programming so that it at least gives an accurate time of drop off point. I didn’t get a chance to read the other reviews but I did see one for 2 yrs ago, it’s 2022 and with only a few stars on your review and a product that you’ve sold and still promote, I especially expect more considering this app is in place for children to have a peace of mind coming off a bus to meet their parents or family members and it takes the edge off of us parents having technology that is quality. Some of us, are working parents
Fails when bus runs multiple routes
The gps tracking lags a lot but seems reasonably accurate. That said if your planning on when to walk out the door or see the app show the bus coming round the corner in sync with real life you will be disappointed.
For me the app fails when bus drivers are short and our bus is running multiple routes. The bus can look like it’s coming to our neighborhood but instead skips it and drives to the school. (It has to drop off the other routes kids before it can come back and run our route). The app says the bus has passed our stop. That’s not technically wrong, but it’s also what it says when it does run our route and has already hit our bus stop. At the same time the app will tell you the bus is running on time and has our route highlighted. Completely misleads you to think the bus has already come.
Situations like this are maybe not obvious during development of an app, but completely solvable if you understand the issue. The fact that this is a mature app and this isn’t solved is my low rating.
Does not do the only thing it’s meant to do
I will be waiting for my child at the bus stop and it was change multiple times from bus is running on time 4:30 (when the current time is 4:45), to the bus is late, to the bus has past your stop. Then the bus will show up.
I have tried tracking the bus and it will show the bus at a stop for a long time when I can see if driving through the neighborhood. Then it freezes the bus in one spot very far away and it looks like the bus is no where near. Then the bus magically pops up at the stop but of course the app still has it frozen 5 miles away.
I’ve actually never written a review in the 10 years I’ve had an iphone but this was by far the worst app I’ve ever downloaded so I felt compelled to write a review. I was so excited to have the ability to see where my child was and when he was arriving. I guess I’ll just have to cross my fingers another company will come along and actually try to make a working app for this. Until then, there is no point in keeping an app on my phone that doesn’t have even one working feature.
