Dallas ISD is committed to the safety of each of our student bus riders.  With nearly 1,000 buses in our fleet, we do not take our responsibility to transport students lightly.  After all, they are precious cargo.  

     If you ever see us falling short with our responsibility of safely transporting students, please let us know immediately through the Let's Talk forum.
