Here Comes the Bus Student Pass Program

Published on: 8/15/2023


The Transportation Department has completed distribution of barcoded student cards for initiation of the Synovia/Here Comes The Bus Student Pass Program. Barcoded cards were generated for bus riders attending elementary and K-8 schools. Students attending middle and high schools will use their school issued ID card for the Synovia/Here Comes The Bus HCTB Student Pass Program. Bus riders in all grade levels may use a smartphone with the Here Comes The Bus app as an additional option for the student pass. 


Each SCCPSS bus is equipped with a tablet to validate students when loading and unloading.  Parents are also able to monitor their child’s scans using the HCTB parent app. For parents already utilizing the HCTB app to monitor the bus, student scans will automatically populate in the app. 

Students should be reminded to keep their card with them for morning and afternoon transportation.  If a student has a card that will not scan, the driver will manually scan the student on/off the bus until the issue is resolved. Parents utilizing the HCTB app, may submit requests for assistance via the app. For additional information you may need related to Synovia/Here Comes The Bus Student Pass Program, please contact Transportation for assistance.
