Fayette school buses getting tracking systems

Herald-Leader Staff ReportAugust 10, 2011 

Fayette County's public schools open Thursday, and this year the district will use GPS and a radio frequency identification system to keep track of the locations of buses and elementary students.

The system will make it possible to quickly determine whether a bus is on schedule and will pinpoint where a student got on or off the bus. The systems will be in full operation by the end of October. For information on your child's bus route, go to FCPS.net/bus or call (859) 381-3855.

Coming Thursday
