Want to know if there is a "Sub Bus" or if your Child's Bus is Running Late?

Don't forget to sign up to track our busses. This application will notify you if the bus number is different due to a sub bus, and you can see exactly where the bus is located. Directions on how to sign up are below!

Track your child's Bus!

The Katy ISD Transportation Department is exited to communicate that all 2019 – 2020 route buses will be equipped with GPS systems. With the new GPS systems, parents, campuses and Transportation personnel will be able to track buses in real-time through a downloadable application from Edulog. Parents and patrons having children riding buses in Katy ISD, the link below contains information on how to download the application. We look forward to working with our parents and campuses as we continue to find new ways to improve safety, efficiency, and responsiveness within the Transportation Department.

Your school’s GPS district code to use in the application is : 52697930
