At Holden R-III, we are committed to providing safe, efficient and reliable transportation service to our students that contributes to their overall academic success. Student transportation is a privilege to be enjoyed by eligible students only as long as they act responsibly, follow all rules and regulations, and respond positively to the directions and requests of bus drivers.

Holden R-III contracts our transportation services through First Student (formerly Apple Bus) in Missouri. Transportation Services can be reached at (816) 732-6541.

Introducing the FirstView App from FirstStudent

FirstStudent is excited to announce the launch of their app, FirstView. This app allows parents to track their child(ren)'s bus, set up notifications to know when the bus is arriving, and receive important alerts from the FirstStudent Transportation office.

All you need to get started is your child(ren)'s student ID number (this can be found on Parent Portal) and to follow the steps in the presentation below!
