• SDMC is now offering the Where's The BusTM App to provide you with timely information about the location of your child’s bus, including when it will arrive at your stop.

    The Where's The BusTM App is free to SDMC families whose children ride the bus. The app is available on any device with Internet access (smartphone, tablet, personal computer, iPod)—and takes less than five minutes to install. Brief instructions are below, and detailed instructions follow.

    At SDMC, our transportation team is committed to providing you with the best service. We hope the Where's The BusTM App makes your household’s bus riding experience even more safe and convenient. If you have any questions about bus transportation, please call (941) 782-1BUS (1287).
