Dear Families,

Colorado Early Colleges has partnered with SafeStop to provide parents and guardians with notifications regarding projected bus arrival times. SafeStop's multi-platform application can also notify parents and guardians each time a student scans on or off the bus. In the event of a service interruption, bus breakdown or poor road conditions, the transportation team can send a push notification about the delay through the SafeStop app. There is no charge to use the SafeStop app.

  1. Steps to begin using the SafeStop app.
  2. Register with SafeStop. Have your CEC's code number ready. (This is emailed to families by the transportation department)
  3. Download the SafeStop app in the official Apple or Android app stores.
  4. Download the SafeStop user guide to help get you started.

*Only the person listed as "Contact Order 1" in parent portal under the tab Family Members may conduct the initial registration. This primary registrant may allow one other person to register and use the app.

SafeStop has useful frequently asked questions and provides robust customer service. Please use these resources for questions about registration, use of the product and other technical issues.




Coming Soon- Online Access to ZPass information:



Every student who rides a CEC bus must be able to present their Z-Pass card and scan on and off the bus. Parents have the option to sign up for free notifications of when their student scans, the location, and the time.

Find more information about Z-Pass+ HERE.

 Z- Pass Student’s Responsibilities:

  1. All transportation-eligible students using CEC transportation to commute to and from school are required to have their +Pass at all times.
  2. Students are expected to place their cards in front of the card reader when they get on and off the school bus.
  3. Students are expected to carry their cards with them every day.
  4. Students who lose or misplace their passes are expected to obtain a temporary Z-Pass from their school office. If the Z-Pass is missing for more than two weeks, students should request a replacement Z-Pass form their school office. Students will be charged $5 for the replacement of this Z-Pass.


NOTE: These routes may be modified or changed to enhance transportation efficiency and reduce costs.
