The bus tracker

Location tracking and surveillance technology is progressing, and a new application called Stopfinder is now being used by parents in the Windom Area School District to monitor and find the proximity of schoolbuses.

If you have ever used Uber, you can literally see where the taxi’s are at in the area around you and pick the one closest to you. With Stopfinder you can’t choose your bus, but you can certainly find out exactly how far away it is from your location, and that can come in handy, especially during the Minnesota winter.

Jamie Frank is the Superintendent at Windom Area Schools and she said they made the decision before school began this year to partner with Palmer Bus Service and provide the app to families.

For more information on this, see the Oct. 25 edition of the Citizen.
