Pedare is now using the BusMinder app system, which allows families to digitally manage their bus pass balance, view route information, and get real-time location and trip data.

BusMinder provides the security of knowing your student has boarded their bus and arrived safely at their destination. Using real-time information, BusMinder allows parents and caregivers to know exactly where your student is at any point during their commute and sends confirmation of boarding and arrival to your smartphone.

Using BusMinder, parents or caregivers will know if their student:

•             Misses the bus

•             Boards the wrong bus

•             Is left behind

•             Disembarks at the wrong location

Ticket purchases will be made digitally through the secure BusMinder app and can be easily topped up at any time. More information on BusMinder can be found at the following link:

Students use their Student ID Card or can purchase a Pedare Bus Card for $10 to use the Bus Services.

  7. After downloading the ‘BusMinder Parent’ app and signing in, parents can pre-load the student’s bus account with their credit card details, choose to receive notifications as the student boards and leaves the bus, as well as seeing, on a Google map, the location of the bus.
  8. Click Students from the bottom menu, then click on a student name to set notification options. You will receive a notification whenever your student boards or disembarks from the bus.

We trust that BusMinder provides peace of mind for parents and an improved service.
