Bibb Schools' bus stop app one way district aims to help students with cold weather


    MACON Ga. -- As the temperatures in Middle Georgia continue to drop, it can become more of a concern to let your kids out to wait or walk to the bus stop.

    The Bibb County School board is suggesting the precaution start at home. When dressing children, ensure that they have:

    • Coats
    • Winter hats
    • Gloves

    Bibb County Schools Director of Transportation Anthony Jackson says parents should use a layering system when dressing your kids. They should have at least several layers and properly covered from head to toe.

    Now for those of you at home who may not have enough coats or you would like to help some students in need, there are currently some coat drives taking place in the community to benefit students.

    One that the Bibb County School District has notified us of is the 3rd Annual Coat and Sock Drive for Kids:

    It is being held through Dec. 3.

    They are accepting coats and socks of all sizes. The items will be given to students on Dec. 6 at two Bibb County elementary schools.

    Also, another way to keep your kids warm is “My Stop” app, which helps students and parents know bus arrivals time and location.

    “My Stop” bus tracker will operate on any computer, iPhone, android or tablet.

    It allows parents and students to view the status of their scheduled bus while the bus is in route to its designated bus stop, as well as the estimated time of arrival.

    Student user requirements:

    • Must be enrolled in a BCSD school and have a valid student ID
    • Be eligible for bus service and be registered as a bus rider
    • Have a current bus pass or bus assignment in e-link

    The school district is saying for all things related to bus stops, this app could be a game changer for families.
