About Houston Independent School District

HISD provides bus service for eligible regular-education students who submit requests to their campus transportation coordinators and have them approved by the Transportation Services Department. Bus stops for most regular-education students will be located at HISD campuses that are within one mile of the student's residence, but no further than two miles. The parent or legal guardian of a student who qualifies for bus service is responsible for transportation, if needed, to the student's assigned bus stop. If a special-needs student's Individualized Education Plan requires transportation services for a free and appropriate public education, HISD provides district bus service to the closest available program that meets the student's needs. The parent or legal guardian of a student who does not qualify for bus service is responsible for the student's transportation, if needed, to the assigned campus. Discounted METRO passes are available to all HISD students. Details about these "Youth" and "Student" discounts, including schedules, are available online under "Fare Information" at www.ridemetro.org, or by calling the METROLine at 713-635-4000. For information about eligibility and bus stops, contact your campus transportation coordinator, or consult the Transportation Services Department Web site.
