SMART tag App

NTPS uses SMART tag. Students scan off and on the bus daily to help us keep track of bus riders!

How does it work?

Students are issued an identification card they wave past a card reader to log on and off the bus. This tool helps keep track of all our riders, making sure everyone is on the right bus and using the correct stop. It has increased the safety and security of our transportation system.

Lost tag?

Contact your school office as soon as possible to obtain a replacement tag.

What do families need to do?

Make sure your student has their badge with them when they ride the bus. Download the app and activate your family account to access push notification settings and more. App will be live in July 2024. Access parent information for Summer Scholars via the SMART tag Parent Portal until app launch.

Note: Riders are marked inactive after 20 total days of not riding the bus

Students who have not utilized transportation for 20 days total will be marked inactive in the SMART tag system and will not be able to ride the bus. Please contact NTPS Transportation to reactivate a student.
