goWSB makes it quick, free and simple to coordinate the morning school walk.
Walking School Buses (WSBs) involve children walking together to school as a group supervised by a coordinator. Get your school to sign up to the goWSB system today so you can get your child to school in a healthy, safe and free way.
App Features: - goWSB is an innovative application that exploits real-time information to enable families to track the WSB as it travels along designated stops and reaches the school. - You can get a real-time estimate of the WSBs' arrival time at your chosen stop and a visualisation of when it arrives at the school. - Download the routes provided by your school and choose the route your child will take. - You can securely add your child to the WSB's register so that the coordinator knows which stop to pick them up at. - Coordinators can use the application to track their position on the way to school. This runs in the background so they can forget about the phone, put it in their pocket and concentrate on looking after your children. - Works anywhere you have a GPS and data connection.
Use goWSB to: - Better coordinate your morning routine with real-time knowledge of where the WSB is. - Get ready for a certain time with real-time predictions of when the WSB will get to your stop. - Let the coordinator know whether your child is getting on the WSB that day. - Check that your child safely got to school.

Notes: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
