Real-time bus information through FirstView app
(1/25/2021) An update has been released to the app store over the weekend. Parents or guardians, please update your FirstView bus app. The updated version is v2.6.5.
Anoka-Hennepin families can now check where their bus is — live — through a new transportation app, called FirstView. The app monitors regular school bus routes in real-time. Best of all, it’s free for parents/guardians and students to use.
While Anoka-Hennepin buses have a tremendous on-time performance record, there are inclement weather and traffic delays that do occur. This app provides families the necessary information to know when their bus will arrive. Families can also see the anticipated length of any delay, an estimated arrival time and if a substitute is driving the route. Email, push and/or text notifications can inform families of such information instantly.
FirstView can be downloaded from app stores (iTunes app store; Android Google Play store). On-screen directions walk first time users through the easy setup process:
- Choose Minnesota and then Anoka-Hennepin from the dropdown menus.
- Log in with your parent/guardian username and password once directed to A-HConnect (if you’ve forgotten your parent/guardian username or password, please call 763-506-HELP).
The app will then automatically populate your student’s information. It’s that easy!
