District Code: J5GN
Route Name: This will be your child's bus number
You’ll then be prompted to REGISTER*.
*Registration information pertaining to your student’s route is provided by your school district. FirstView Customer Support cannot provide this information to you.

3). Follow a Route
Once you have confirmed your account, login and select Profile to “Add A Student” with the information you received from your school district. Next, you will select AM/MID/PM Route, search for your route name (bus number) and select your school (if applicable).

4). Setup Distance Alerts
To setup alerts for tracking the bus, you will be prompted to “Configure Notification”. Select the location you want to track the bus to, choose a geofence size around your location, and set your time range.
