Texcaster/Bus Tracker Information

The Ankeny Community School District contracts with Durham School Services to provide busing for our students.  They offer two services that we would like to make sure you are aware of, as they provide important information to ensure the safety of our children.

  1. Sign up for Durham text alerts: this allows you to get text messages if a bus is delayed.  You must sign up for this service once per year as bus numbers and routes change from year to year.
  2. If you are wondering when your child's bus will arrive at its designated stop, you can download and sign up for Durham's free bus tracker app.  The benefits:
  • View all of your students' buses, routes, and locations in one grouped view.
  • View near real-time bus location and information, including the scheduled arrival time of your student’s bus.
  • Password-protected account.

If you would like additional information, please go to the Ankeny School District website's transportation information section.
