Bus Status & APP
Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools offers parents of bus students an app which is available for free download at the Apple App Store or on Google Play. The App displays up to date bus information for your child's bus. The app is connected to the school bus statuses that are featured on the division and school websites. Each time the bus status is updated on the website the app will push a notification to your iPhone or Android phone. The app is provided as a service to parents/guardians of students who ride Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools buses. There is a safety element in that parents/ guardians will be notified of a cancellation of busing service, or a delay in service.
If you’re not sure of your bus route number, you can see the routes listed by driver name on Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools website at http://www.wrps.ab.ca/parents/bus-route-status once you download the app, you can “favorite” your child’s route by number and receive push notifications should that route be cancelled or delayed.
To connect to the app, go to the links below from your iPhone or Android and you’ll see a prompt to connect you directly to the app, or go to the App Store or Google Play and search for “Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools Bus Status.
