My Ride K-12 Parent App

The Liverpool Central School District Transportation Department is proud to announce it will enhance student safety and security by implementing a new Web site and mobile phone app that allows families and students to look up bus route information, receive real-time alerts and notifications, and will eventually allow tracking the location of school buses in real-time. 

LCSD students in grades K-2, as well as ENL and Special Education students, will receive RFID cards to scan into the buses as part of this new pilot program. These cards will be sent out to families along with bus route information before the start of school and will include information on how to use the app. 

My Ride K-12 App is a mobile app for Apple and Android devices to help ensure students never miss the bus again. The App allows parents and students to access their own secure data for bus stop location, route, and pick-up time. Each Liverpool bus is now equipped with Tyler Drive GPS, and My Ride K-12 can use the GPS geolocation to let users know when to expect their bus each day and provide the district real-time data to enhance the safety and security of all students during transport. 

The My Ride K-12 app contains each student’s bus route information and is used to send alerts and notifications for school bus delays or other issues that might affect a student’s school bus route. 

Parents can use a mobile device, tablet, or desktop to view this information. Visit the My Ride K-12 Web site or download the My Ride K-12 app for iPhone or Android app see QR Codes below).

Tyler Drive GPS

The Liverpool Central School District is focused on providing safe transportation for all students. All school buses are equipped with Mobile Data Terminals which helps drivers focus on the road, manage student location information, and provide oversight of this important part of your child’s day.

Tyler Drive is a system which includes a Mobile Data Terminal and RFID Card Reader, which is mounted near the school bus driver. It provides drivers with turn-by-turn directions to each stop on their route, and manages student ridership, which is reported in real time back to the district’s transportation dispatch office.

RFID Cards

Students in grades K-2 will be issued a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) scan card on an annual basis. RFID Card SampleThis card will be used for the duration of the school year indicated on the card. Students will be required to use their cards each time they board and exit the school bus.  If a student forgets or loses their card, the driver can register them manually on the Mobile Data Terminal. If a student’s ID card has been lost or stolen, they may obtain a replacement card through the transportation office.
