Set Up Your Profile
Open the FirstView® app from your home screen and begin the registration process. You’ll be asked to:
Student ID District Code(if asked):
Route Name/Bus Number
Follow a Route
Once you have confirmed your account, login and select Profile to “Add A Student” with the information you received from your school district. Next, you will select AM(morning),MID(mid-day), PM (afternoon) Route, search for your route name and select your school (if applicable).
Setup Distance Alerts
To setup alerts for tracking the bus, you will be prompted to “Configure Notification”. Select the location you want to track the bus to, choose a geofence size around your location, and set your time range. When the bus enters your geofence within the time range selected, you will get a notification that the bus is near. Students should still be at their assigned bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time communicated by the school district.
Go to Settings and select “Notification Recipients” to add email notifications for up to 3 recipients, including yourself. From this screen, you can also edit your Profile or follow another route. Alerts and notifications from your district or the bus depot will appear under Notifications in the menu.
*To receive push notifications, you must allow your mobile device to receive notifications from the FirstView® app. You will be prompted upon downloading the app or you can confirm/update your settings within your phone’s app settings.
