Stock Bus Tracker

Do you want to follow your child's bus in near-real time? Stock Transportation has developed a mobile app called the Stock Bus Tracker, which tracks HRCE school buses.


Please Note: If you set up the Stock Bus Tracker in the 2016-17 school year, you do not have to set it up again. Click here to download the app.

Stock Bus Tracker Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who can use the Stock Bus Tracker?
A: Students who are eligible for busing and parents/guardians of any student who is eligible for busing.
Q: Does the Stock Bus Tracker track my child’s whereabouts?
A: No. The Stock Bus Tracker only tracks buses, not the individuals who ride them.
Q: Does the Stock Bus Tracker track special needs buses?
A: Yes.
Q: Does the Stock Bus Tracker track bus routes of students who receive courtesy busing?
A: No.
Q: What does near-real time mean?
A: It’s nearly real time. Location data is refreshed every 15 seconds.
Q: Why does the app ask me for a Student ID number, but instead I have to create one consisting of my child’s last name and last four digits of their Provincial Student ID? Why not just use the Provincial Student ID?
A: The Stock Bus Tracker is available for use in 50 districts in the US. We are the only Canadian jurisdiction to have the app. We had to create a unique identifier to use the app in Canada. See images above for directions on how to log in.
Q: What if my child uses a bus route other than their home stop (i.e. daycare, sitter, etc)?
A: To ensure Stock Transportation has the correct busing information, it is critical that the child’s school has the information in the right spot in PowerSchool. This information must be updated in the Alternate Busing Information section in PowerSchool, by the child’s school.
It may take a few days for the updated information to show up in the app, as Stock doesn’t pull new data on a daily basis.
Q: Is it possible to have different stops for different days of the week in the app (i.e., stop at the sitter’s on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and then stop at home on Tuesdays and Thursdays)?
A: No. You can only have one pick up and drop off, 5 days a week. 
Q: Who do I call for support?
A: Call school if:
  • you don’t know your child’s Student ID
  • you need to update your child’s alternate busing information in PowerSchool
Call Stock Transportation at 902.481.8400 if:
  • you need support with the Stock Bus Tracker app
  • you have bus routing questions
