Durham Bus Tracker App Now Available
The Troy City School District is pleased to offer our students and families the Durham Bus Tracker app, which allows families to view the location of their child’s bus and provides near real-time information about the bus routes, including scheduled arrival time of each stop. This free app works with GPS technology currently installed on all Durham buses.
Download the free app on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or visit m.durhambustracker.com on your mobile device or computer. After setting a secure username and password, you will need to enter your child’s last name and student ID number (without the leading zeros – this is also your child’s lunch ID number) as well as location (Troy CSD) and state (New York).
Durham School Services has provided the following documentation for families:
- Durham Bus Tracker Getting Started & FAQ
- Durham Bus Tracker Info Sheet – English
- Durham Bus Tracker Info Sheet – Spanish
- Durham Bus Tracker Info Sheet – Arabic

The major objectives of the Transportation Department include the following:
- To provide safe and efficient transportation in an equitable manner to all eligible students.
- To adapt busing to the needs of the instructional program whenever practical.
- To explore and implement cost-effective procedures and practices whenever practical.

Incident on a Bus
New District Residents
Once residency verification is confirmed by Central Registration, notification of student transportation bus schedules takes approximately 48 hours.
The deadline for requests for transportation from new residents of the district is 30 days after establishing residence in the district. The parent/guardian is responsible for providing Central Registration with proof of residency.
Private, Charter and Parochial Students
Students who reside within the Troy City School District and plan to attend a private, charter or parochial school must submit a Transportation Request Form by April 1, 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year. We do NOT provide transportation when the District is closed.
A student’s medical condition must be reported to both the School Nurse and the Coordinator of Transportation. Any changes to the medical condition must also be reported. All medical records are kept confidential, information is only shared on a ‘need to know’ basis for Transportation purposes.
Requests for Special Transportation due to an injury or other temporary medical condition must be accompanied by detailed instructions from the student’s physician and School Nurse. These instructions should include the exact needs and expected duration of the special Transportation request. All special Transportation requests are subject to approval by the Transportation Department.
Please contact your School Nurse to initiate this process.
