2021-22 Bus Information

2021-22 Bus information

Families whose students are eligible for transportation will receive their bus information by email or letter on Aug 3. The district’s Bus Stop Finder'' will be live on Aug 3. Families whose students have special needs will receive their information in person from their bus teams starting the second week of August.

“WheresTheBus” App for Families

AISD’s transportation team offers families the “WheresTheBus” app, which provides timely information about the location of their student’s bus, including when it will arrive at their stop.

The free app is available on any device with internet access (smartphone, tablet, personal computer, iPad)—and takes less than five minutes to install. Instructions are available at https://www.austinisd.org/transportation.

Families of Students Who Receive Special Education Support

We would like to invite all parents/caregivers of children who receive support through SPED and/or 504 services to join our caregiver support group on Facebook. This is a supportive group where you can ask questions, take part in educational and supportive programming, and connect with other parents.
