Update your school bus app with My Ride K-12

The school bus app offered to TPS families will be retired May 1, 2024, and replaced with My Ride K-12.

Families can download the free My Ride K-12 and start using it now. My Ride K-12 allows families to access their secure data for their child’s bus stop location, route and pickup time from their phone.

Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store

Setting up My Ride K-12
Once you download My Ride K-12, search for Tacoma Public Schools and register for an account. After you confirm your email, log in again and add/link your students. You will need to know your child’s student ID. (If you used the former application, Ride 360, you don’t need a new account; you can log in with your existing credentials.)

More safety features
Most TPS elementary students who ride the bus have a badge to confirm they are on the right bus before their trip starts. The badge also allows guardians and school officials to see when and where students get on and off the bus.

Students receiving special education services do not carry a badge, but they receive the benefits of the badge through services provided by their bus driver.
