Introducing the FirstView Bus Tracking App

Posted Date: 11/30/2022

Dear Weston Families:

In continued partnership with our transportation provider, First Student, the Weston Public Schools is launching FirstView, a bus tracking and parent communications app for your smartphone or desktop.

• Live Tracking

The FirstView map screen shows you the location and direction of your student’s bus, for both morning and afternoon trips. FirstView also provides caregivers with confirmation when the trip is complete.

• Customizable Bus Proximity Notifications

With FirstView, you set up a geofence around your location and are alerted when the bus enters the geofence. The geofence size and alert times are customizable, so parents are in control of their notifications. Students should still be at their assigned bus stop 10 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time.

• Custom Alerts and Messages

Set up push or email notifications alerting you when your student’s bus enters the geofence. Connect up to three additional email accounts (including your own) to receive email alerts. This is a great feature for grandparents or caregivers.

• Multi-Stop View

Buses for all your students can be tracked with FirstView. Using individual colors for each student, the bus assigned to each student’s route appears on the map in the same color as the student for easy viewing.

• Secure and Easy Access

FirstView requires a password-protected account for app set-up. This way, only you can view your student’s stop.

• Dedicated Customer Support

If you are having trouble getting started with FirstView, not seeing correct data or have an idea to make FirstView better, feel free to contact FirstView directly.
