Traversa Ride 360

The Newton Community School District covers 195 square miles, which includes the communities of Kellogg, Lambs Grove, and Newton.  Our Transportation Department takes great pride in assuring students a safe and reliable ride to and from school and school events.  We are happy to announce the adoption of an innovative mobile device app entitled Traversa Ride 360.

Traversa Ride 360 allows you to view the real-time location of your child's school bus on your smartphone, tablet or computer.  With it, you will have the information you need to send your children to the bus stop at just the right time, helping to protect them from inclement weather or other issues, and know when their bus is heading back at the end of the school day.
