With kids packing up to head off to the first day of the new school year, there's a new system in place for Midland I.S.D. students to make sure they're safe on their bus ride to school.

A new bus program kicked off Monday with students using a Z-pass card as an electronic ID badge.

All they do is swipe the badge when they get on and off the bus and all that data is tracked to make sure there's a record of when and where a child rode the bus.

Parents are able to log into an app and access this information themselves.
