Families interested in neighborhood bus service through WCPSS must fill out a Transportation Service request form. This form should have been provided to you when registering at TCE, but if you still need to request bus service, the registration form can be found on the WCPSS Transportation website (https://www.wcpss.net/transportation).
Here Comes the Bus
WCPSS Transportation provides families of students who ride a school bus to school with a free bus tracking system. This app allows you to see where the bus is and how close it is to your stop. Get started with Here Comes the Bus at https://herecomesthebus.com/parents/get-started/. You will need the district code (67500) and your student’s ID number to sign up. For your smartphone or tablet, download the Here Comes the Bus app from the App Store or Google Play. Additional information on this app can be found on the Transportation website.
TCE bus route information can be accessed at https://www.wcpss.net/Page/5504 or by clicking on the Transportation icon on the main TCE website.
All students choosing carpool as their method of transportation to and from school must sign up for a carpool tag number. Signup usually occurs during the beginning of every school year at the Meet the Teacher event. If you need to make any changes to your student’s transportation information, please contact the TCE main office for assistance.
