FirstView Bus Tracking

  • In continued partnership with our transportation provider, First Student, West Linn - Wilsonville School District is launching FirstView®, a bus tracking and parent communications app for your smartphone or desktop.

    Live Tracking

    The FirstView® map screen shows you the location and direction of your student’s bus, your student's stop schedule for the current day and timestamps for school arrivals and departures. You’ll know when the bus arrives to or departs from school.

    Predictive Stop Arrival Times

    Analyzing route and real-time GPS data, it determines an estimated time of arrival to your stop provided on the FirstView® map. The app is designed to provide parents with a better guideline for bus location and ETA. Students should still be at their assigned bus stop 10 minutes prior to the estimated or scheduled arrival time.

    Custom Alerts and Messages

    Set up push or email notifications alerting you when your student's bus is a chosen distance or number of minutes away from your stop.

    Multi-Stop View

    Buses for all your students can be tracked with FirstView®. Using individual colors for each student, every selected stop appears on the map simultaneously for easy viewing.

    Additional User Notifications

    Connect up to three additional email accounts (including your own) to receive email alerts. This is a great feature for grandparents or caregivers!

    Available in Multiple Languages

    English, French (Canadian), Spanish, Vietnamese, Oromo, Chinese, Amharic, Tagalog, Somali, Tigrinya are available based on your phone’s language settings.

    Secure and Easy Access

    FirstView® requires a password-protected account for app set-up. This way, only you can view your student’s stop! These codes are provided to you by your district.
