New JBS Parent App

Tuesday 13th October 2020


Dear Parents,

We have been working alongside Clarion Call for the last few months to introduce tracking onto our network of school bus routes.  All our routes are in the process of being given access to an app that tracks the progress of the coach as it carries out the AM & PM routes.   The app is designed to make you aware of the progress of the journey between stops.  It does not however allow you to see the exact location of the coach.

The next stage is for us to give you access to the parent interface of the app which will give you a list of available routes and the ability to watch the one that is used by your child. Please be aware that tracking will be switched on as we become confident that the operator using the system has grasped how to use it. We will try to ensure that this gets rolled out as soon as possible across our network of routes.

Please be aware that if no route data is available this may be down to a signal issue or driver error and unfortunately outside our control.  No need to contact the Transport Manager to alert us to this.

The free app is called Unify Mobile (Invessel B.V) and is available from both Play Store for Android and App Store for Apple devices.  It has a green C as the logo.   Once the app has been downloaded you can login using the email address that Jointbus hold for you.

When you sign into the app please click on the Bus symbol at the bottom.  It should recognise the route used by your children.    

More routes will be added over the coming weeks, emails will be sent out to advise parents when they go live.

Best wishes


Abingdon JBS
