BusWhere App

Dear Big Lake Schools Community,

We are excited to share with you that in partnership with Vision Transportation, our transportation vehicles will now have a tracking service called BusWhere. Parents, guardians and students will be able to watch buses on a map in real-time, see how long the bus spends at each stop, and receive notifications with real-time ETAs and automatic notifications if a bus is running late. 

Vision Transportation will be sending email notifications to families from with a unique invitation to download the app (Note: you will only be able to see your students’ bus route and stop information). 

We hope that implementing this new technology will help provide peace of mind to know where buses are and if they are running late. Please allow 2-3 days for Vision Transportation to complete sending invitations to families with specific details. If you have questions or need support with BusWhere, please contact Vision Transportation directly at

Thank you for your patience and partnership as we roll out this new technology service.
