FirstView™ is your resource for knowing the location of your student’s bus, estimated arrival times at your student’s stop and the bus's arrival or departure from school. FirstView™, powered by First Student, is a partnership with the school districts we serve, bringing increased transparency and communication about the school bus to students and their families.
Currently, FirstView™ is only available to a small number of school districts, but we are working hard to offer it to more! Please contact your district or our support team to know if FirstView™ is available to you.
To get started, first you must download FirstView™ from your app store. You can also click on the links on this page.
