Hempstead ISD is offering the new Stopfinder! app to provide parents and students timely information about district bus transportation. The app provides an estimate of when the bus will arrive at its stop. Families can also switch between bus schedules if they have multiple children who ride different buses.

Bus routes and stop locations may be accessed through the use of Spotfinder! tool. The app is free to district families whose students ride the bus and is accessible on any phone or tablet that has access to the Internet. Families must have an email account on file with the school district. Families are encouraged to reach out to their child’s campus registrar if they do not have an email on file. 

All families who have requested bus transportation in the past and have an active email address on file should have received a notification with a link to sign up for Stopfinder! 

During the first few days of school, it is recommended that students are ready at the bus stop approximately 10 minutes before the estimated stop time until regular route schedules are established. Please be aware that bus routes and schedules may be modified as the school year continues to best meet the needs of our students.
