The MPS Transportation Department is pleased to share that we will begin using Remind to utilize text messages to notify subscribed families and students to last minute significant delays or interruptions in bus service. This system will be used for major mechanical issues, weather related delays, road closures or other unavoidable last minute major interruptions, not minor delays. You do NOT need to have a smartphone to receive the text messages.
Families will need to OPT IN and SUBSCRIBE to this service. You will NOT automatically begin receiving updates by having a bus pass. We would encourage Pierce Middle School and Milton High School students to subscribe as well.
To subscribe to the MPS Transportation text update system please follow these steps:
- In the phone number box of your text message app, type in the phone number 81010
- In the message box, type the following code @mpsbusinfo and send
- You will receive a text confirming that you have subscribed
- You can stop receiving updates at any time by texting back @leave
Please note that the system cannot receive texts back nor are the emails monitored from the Remind App. The best way to communicate with the transportation department is through email at email@example.com.
