The “Durham Bus Tracker” improves communication for parents and students who ride District school buses.

Our transportation partner, Durham School Services, has developed a phone app allowing parents to securely view the location of their child’s bus in relation to their assigned bus stop.

The D300 Transportation Department welcomes you back to school!

Have you downloaded my bus tracker? This convenient app allows you to monitor your bus in real time.

This first week of school, please be patient as we all get used to our new bus routes. Buses may be delayed. Please allow at least an extra fifteen minutes before calling Durham to check on your bus.

Who should I call if my bus is late?
