    Transportation Registration requests for the 2019-2020 Shool Year
    We are excited that Transportation Registration is now included in the 2019-2020 HISD Returning Student Registration process done online through the Home Access Center! 

    NOTE:  Students are not APPROVED to ride until HISD Transportation calls the parent with the bus route details!

    Transportation Registration is an annual requirement and this year is part of the Home Access Center (HAC) Returning HISD Student Registration process.  

    After you complete the HAC Registration form, you will receive an email confirmation.  The email confirmation does NOT mean that your child is automatically APPROVED to ride the bus. The HISD Transportation Department will CALL parents once the child is approved to ride and give the bus route details. 

    START OF SCHOOL INSTRUCTIONS August 15-19, 2019:
    Parents, please make arrangements to pick your child up FROM THEIR CAMPUS after school until you receive the approval phone call from HISD Transportation.

    **Beginning August 20, 2019, parents will be required to pick the child up from the Transportation Department in the afternoon, if the child is NOT yet approved to ride.

    Only students who are approved to ride will be allowed afternoon bus transportation.  All other students will be held from afternoon transportation until their registration to ride is approved and parents are called with route details.  Any student standing outside in the morning will be picked up by bus and transported to school but they will not be transported home in the afternoon unless approved.

    All NEW HISD students needing transportation will submit the required bus registration paper application at the campus with their enrollment paperwork.  Home Access Center is not an option for New students requesting transportation.  
    Please contact the child's campus for Transportation registration or changes.  New requests and transportation changes typically take 48 to 72 hours to process and become approved, so please plan accordingly.
