NEW AND FINAL PROCEDURE BUS STOP WALK RANGE
The bus stop walk range is defined as the maximum walking distance from a student's residential address to the student's assigned stop location. The stop range for Elementary School students is one quarter mile, for Middle School students it is one half mile, for High School students it is one mile. Due to time constraints, and bus passenger capacity, the maximum walk range for Magnet campuses, designated Academies and special programs approved for cross-town busing, is one and a quarter mile. Landmark locations, such as AISD school campuses, may be used to accommodate the most students possible in a timely and efficient manner.
AISD BUS STOP FINDER
LASA Students can travel to LASA on Magnet Bus Routes provided by AISD. To find a student's route and closest bus stop, use the AISD Bus Stop Finder. Please also use this service to find out bus service for LATE START DAYS.
AUXILIARY BUS REQUEST
Should a student need to be dropped off at a different location than the student's house OR if a student needs to ride a bus different from the one assigned on a temporary basis, s/he MUST have a permit. To secure a permit, the parent or guardian needs to complete an Auxiliary Bus Rider Request and Permit and the student needs to bring that request to the LASA Main Office for the appropriate signature. The student needs to give the bus driver the form to be permitted to ride that bus.
If a student needs to ride a bus different from the one assigned on a regular basis, the parent/guardian needs to contact AISD Transportation: 414-0238.
BUS TRACKING APP: "Wheresthebus"
AISD is offering the WheresTheBusTM app to provide you with timely information about the location of your child’s bus, including when it will arrive at your stop. The WheresTheBusTM app is free to AISD families whose children ride the bus. The app is available on any device with Internet access (smartphone, tablet, personal computer, iPod)—and takes less than five minutes to install. For more information and instructions, click here. If you have any questions about bus transportation, please call 512-414-0238.
LASA LATE BUS SERVICE
AISD provides Late Bus service to LASA students, departing daily at 6:30 p.m. Students who plan to use the late activity bus should report to the pick-up area behind the theater/gym area at 6:15 to allow time to find the correct bus; it is very important that students riding the late activity bus know their assigned bus number before arriving. If a student doesn’t see the correct bus or is unsure which bus to board, the student should speak with a driver, who will be able to assist.
Late Activity bus stops have been created based on students currently riding. If your student hasn't been riding the Late Activity bus this school year and didn't ride it last school year, they may not have been assigned a Late Activity bus even though they are eligible for one. For students who need to ride the Late Activity bus for the first time this school year, please check the AISD bus stop finder to see if a bus has been assigned. For eligible students without an assignment, please contact Transportation for a bus stop to be created.
If you have questions about the Late Bus, please contact Cheryl Verse 512-414-0239 or Kelly Kahoe 512-414-0237,
Coordinator for Scheduling, AISD Department of Transportation at Cheryl Verse - firstname.lastname@example.org.
