The 2016-17 Bus Schedule has been released. Please view pdf.
DISD provides school buses from most Dallas High School Campuses to Townview. Please note that tweaks can be made to this schedule during the first 2-3 weeks of school as ridership becomes known. Please refer to the DISD site for updates.
Activity Bus: We have Buses that leave the school an hour later and are called "Activity Buses". This allows students to stay after school for various reasons, club meetings, etc. A student will need to obtain a pass from the teacher they have stayed late with in order to ride the "late" activity bus. Activity busses do not run every day of the school year... and especially not on Fridays. Please view the 2015-16 pdf activity bus schedule here. (2016-17 will be posted as soon as we receive it)
We will post any updated schedules we receive here.
Transportation Update - We were just about to send the following note out to parents and then received the schedule above. It has some good information, so we are including it in this communication anyway...
Friday, August 19:
Currently, the Transportation Department is completing its routing of students prior to the first day of school. For the majority of the more than 58,000 students that are transportation-eligible, that process has been completed.
However, Dallas ISD Transportation Services and Dallas County Schools are to continuing to update our shared database. We are currently experiencing high demand volume causing periodic delays to the online system when parents are accessing bus routes for some special education students and some magnet/school choice students. As such, some parents may be unable to access their routes online.
As such, we are taking the appropriate steps to update families:
Dallas ISD and Dallas County Schools are updating data in the database.
We are updating the transportation website with a notice informing parents of this information.
Dallas ISD/Dallas County Schools will directly contact impacted parents through Sunday to provide updates.
We will send out an automated phone message to families along with social media messages.
For parents with concerns or questions, please direct them to the Dallas ISD Transportation Hotline at 972-925-4953. The hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sunday and 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, Aug. 22-26.
