MyStop is a web-based application available to all Robbinsdale Area Schools parents and students that lets them access live bus GPS information. Using a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, parents and students can view the current location of buses on routes and the estimated time of arrival at their neighborhood bus stops.
This simple and informative tool gives parents, guardians and students the ability to know approximately where the school bus is on its route. MyStop displays the school bus’s approximate location on a map, as well as the estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a specific student’s bus stop. The school bus’s location is automatically updated every few minutes, and the ETA is recalculated to accommodate any delays due to traffic while the bus is en route. Please note: MyStop is not available to private schools, and does not work for after-school activity routes since there are no students assigned to them and no set stops.
There's a Versatrans MyStop app in iTunes and Google Play that can be downloaded and used for MyStop as well. It's much easier to use on phone or tablet.
How do I use MyStop?
Parents have a username and password associated with their student or students' routing information. This login and password is available (click here to see where) in the district’s Parent Portal. If you have an existing Parent Portal account, log in and click on MyStop Login to confirm your MyStop user name and password. It may be different than your Parent Portal login information. (If you haven't registered for a Parent Portal account, click here.)
To access MyStop, click here, and enter your username and password. You will see a map depicting a portion of your student's bus route. Your child’s name will display in the box in the top menu bar. The yellow arrow represents the bus's current location and direction. The orange icon represents your student’s stop. We recommend bookmarking this access page on your browser to allow for quicker future log ins.
The box at the bottom of the map provides system messages and lists the current location of your child’s bus as well as the estimated time the bus will arrive at your child’s bus stop.
If you have any questions, you can contact Transportation Services by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include the name of your student (or students) in the email.
Tips and Tricks
- Do not login to MyStop too early before your child’s scheduled pick-up or drop-off time. The data provided through My Stop is constantly changing. Estimated times of arrival are based on standard GPS route calculations, and not the actual length of time remaining to get to your child’s bus stop. You will access the most accurate data if you check the system within 10 minutes of your child’s scheduled pick-up or drop-off time.
- Both parents and students will use the same login information to access the system (parents and students do not have separate accounts).
- Rather than typing in the full URL address for MyStop each time you want to access the system, save it as a favorite on your desktop computer or add a quick link to the home screen of your smartphone or tablet to have quick and easy access to the system any time you need it.
