New App for Bus Information

New App for Bus Information
Posted on 06/29/2023

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Waterford-Halfmoon UFSD Transportation Department will be using a new app called Stopfinder for the ESY Program this summer and the upcoming school year. 

Stopfinder is an easy-to-use app that allows you to have the most accurate information about your child’s bus schedule at any time from anywhere. In addition to displaying your child’s transportation information, Stopfinder has a private messaging feature that allows you to communicate directly with the Waterford-Halfmoon UFSD Transportation Department. You can also create GeoAlerts for your children, which will notify you when the bus has arrived or departed from any location on their route, including their assigned bus stop and school. GeoAlert Alert Zones can be created for individual students allowing you to customize the Alert Zone based on their bus routes. 

The email address that is currently on file with the district will be used for Stopfinder setup. If you need to change your primary email address, please contact Carol Burniche for your elementary students at x3501, or Kerri Mulligan for your high school students at x3314.  Changes must be made prior to July 10, 2023.  This will ensure that you receive your child’s bussing information. Please note, if you already receive emails from the school, you will not need to make changes.  

You will receive an email from Stopfinder on Monday, July 17, 2023. Please click on the link in the email to activate your subscription. 

Stopfinder can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. Stopfinder will require an invite and registration through the district prior to accessing your student’s transportation schedule. Please watch for your emailed invitation from Stopfinder on Monday, July 17, which will be sent to your primary email. 

If you have any questions, please contact Director of Transportation Jessica Harblin at 518-237-0800 x3310.
