We are very excited to announce the availability of the FirstView mobile app from First Student Transportation.

This app can be used to check the status of your child’s bus route. The FirstView App provides the ability to access real time bus tracking with estimated arrival times.  Additionally, this app will provide First Student the ability to “push” transportation-related messages should there be a delay, or important reminder. 

You may download the app on your phone or iPad by searching FirstView or on your computer at

When you download the app and are prompted to select the "school name", please choose "Glenbrook" as Northbrook School District 27 is in a combined contract with the Northfield Township schools.

If you have any questions regarding the app please email or call their toll free number 1-888-889-8920.
