Austin ISD transports nearly 23,000 students daily on nearly 500 buses. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable and professional transportation for our students; all buses have seat belts.
Students riding or waiting on an AISD school bus are under the supervision of the district the same as if they are in the school building or on the school grounds, and therefore, are subject to the student disciplinary policies of the district.
Updates About Delays and Changes
