To add a student to your Here Comes the Bus (HCTB) account using the app, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to HCTB. (See Logging In to Here Comes the Bus for details, if needed.)
    The Here Comes the Bus Home screen will appear.
  2. Tap Students.

    The Students screen will appear and display the names of the students currently in your account.
  3. Tap Add Student. 

    The Add Student dialog box will appear.

    If your district requires you to enter a PIN (personal identification number) in order to add a student to your HCTB account, the Add Student dialog box will look like this:

    In step 4 below, you'll need to also type the PIN the school provided you with.
    Note: You won't need the PIN again (unless your student is deleted from your account and you need to add them again later), as logging in doesn't require it.
  4. Type the student's last name and student ID.
    Caution: Make sure to type JUST the last name! A common mistake parents make is to type both the first and last name here, which will result in an error.
  5. Tap Submit.
    A success message will be displayed, and the new student's name will appear in the Students list.

  6. Tap Close.

  7. To add another student, repeat steps 3 through 6.
