BOSTON (CBS) — Boston’s problems with late school buses have been well-documents in recent years.
Officials say things are much better now and when school opens this week, parents will be able to track bus locations on the internet.

The program uses GPS on the buses to track their location.
“It can be used on a phone, tablet or computer,” says Carl Allen, the school system’s transportation director.
When parents log on, they will see a Google map showing their school bus and where it is headed.
“All parents need to do is sign on with their last name, the student’s ID number and date of birth,” Allen said.
