Welcome to Transportation

In continued partnership with our transportation provider, First Student,SAU 50is piloting 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 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. Connect up to three additional email accounts (including your own) to receive email alerts. This is a great feature for grandparents or caregivers!
  • 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.
  • 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 by your district/school.
