Snow overnight and icy conditions today served as a great reminder about Palliser's Bus Status app, available for free for iPhone and Android mobile devices. 

A better looking, faster and more personalized version of Bus Status will be available starting at 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 27.

New features:

Sleek, modern design enjoyable through the web, iPhone, and Android.

4X faster processing time.

Speedier push notification system, letting you know about delays and cancellations quicker.

Additional information about Palliser's Transportation Services.


Users must “star” buses they wish to receive push notifications for once they have upgraded. Previously favourited buses in the old version will not be saved.

If you already have the app on your mobile device, you'll receive a few handy reminders about the upgrade and the need to favourite routes of interest to you over the next several days.

The bus app is created by Box Clever, an Edmonton-based web design company, and information on Palliser routes is updated by Central Office Transportation Services staff. 

To download a free copy, search for the Palliser Schools Bus Status app in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.
