Bus Registration Information

  • Transportation Registration requests for the 2020-2021 School Year is OPEN.

    Transportation Protocol:
    Huntsville ISD’s transportation scheduling team will collaborate with campuses to determine family transportation needs and coordinate bus routes based on route capacity and needed accommodations. Per TEA’s COVID-19 guidance regarding transportation, Huntsville ISD is implementing enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures between each bus trip. Bus transportation is provided for eligible riders and every effort is made to ensure students can socially distance. Face coverings will be required for all bus riders. In addition, TEA encourages families to drop students off, carpool, or walk with their student to school to reduce possible virus exposure on a bus. Safety remains at the forefront of this effort.

    As schools reopen, students using school bus transportation services will follow revised protocols. Starting at the time when students arrive at their designated bus stop and board the school bus, the new safety and sanitizing protocols will need to be followed. 
    The Huntsville ISD Transportation Department offers the following guidance to parents and caregivers regarding school bus transportation for daily bus routes as well as field trips. Bus routes will run at regular capacity. Although the district is implementing the safety protocols and disinfecting efforts described below, families are encouraged to drop students off, carpool or walk with their student to school to reduce possible exposure on buses. We are requiring all of our drivers and students to wear masks while on the school bus.

2020-2021 Transportation Registration - Online Request

  • Transportation Registration is an annual requirement and separate from the Student Registration process for school.  All routes and schedules are subject to change each year and throughout the school year as needed. 
    Please click the link below to request Transportation for your student.  

    Only students who are approved to ride will be allowed afternoon bus transportation.  All other students will be prohibited from using afternoon transportation services until their registration to ride is approved by HISD Transportation 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 after the school year begins, will submit the required bus registration request at the campus with their enrollment paperwork. 
    Please contact the child's campus Registrar/PEIMS Specialist for Transportation Registration or to request changes during the school year.  New requests and transportation changes typically take up to 72 hours to process and become approved, so please plan accordingly.
