New app in the works for parents with students in Dougherty Co. school system

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County School System is in the process of getting a school bus app for parents and students.

Officials said they are working on a free app that will provide an estimated time of arrival.

Students will also be able to find what bus stop their assigned to based on their student I.D.

The app is compatible with the recent routing upgrades installed on each school bus.

“ We have to work with our IT department to make sure that we can get that item on our server and connect it to our routing software to make sure that everything is good for the start of next school term,” said Kenneth William, Transportation Director.

Williams said the app can be used on your phone, tablet and school website.

School leaders said they hope to have the app available by next school year.
