Committed to Safety and Service

Our goal in the Transportation Department is to provide safe and efficient transportation to and from school to all eligible students attending the United Independent School District.

As we enter a new school year, we ask all parents and bus riders, to take the time to read and sign an acknowledgment of receipt of the Bus Rider Handbook. You may request an extra copy at your school office or directly from the bus driver. This handbook explains regulations, gives procedures and provides useful information designed to render the best transportation service possible to our students.

Community members, Parents, School Personnel, Security Officers and Bus Drivers must work together to protect our students. Expect the unexpected is our motto. Children can dart into the street from between the cars or in front of the stopped School Bus. Be extremely cautious when driving anywhere where children are likely to be. Obey school bus traffic rules at all times.

If you should have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact our offices at the North or South Transportation Compounds respectively. Our hours of operations are from 6:00am-5:00 pm Monday through Friday on school days.
