Bus Information

  • Welcome

    Dallas County residents voted Nov. 7 to dissolve Dallas County Schools, the taxpayer-funded agency that Dallas ISD contracted with to bus students. A Dissolution Committe has been appointed by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, and the committee will begin meeting to oversee the closeout and remain in place until DCS' outstanding debt is repaid.

    Parents with any questions are encouraged to contact the Dallas ISD call center at (972) 925-5555. A customer service representative will be standing by and ready to assist with any transportation-related questions.

    Further updates will be posted here as they become available.

  • Questions and Answers

    Will this impact my child’s bus route?

    Dallas ISD anticipates that the bus routes and times will stay the same throughout the rest of the school year. We will continue to keep our families informed about any potential changes.

    What happens next?

    Dallas ISD families should not notice any major changes during this time, since the bus routes and schedules are expected to stay the same.

    Will Dallas ISD start managing its own transportation?

    Dallas ISD is in the process of finalizing a comprehensive plan on how to best provide transportation for students. The plan explores these options going forward:

    • Dallas ISD manages its own transportation system
    • Dallas ISD contracts with an outside provider for transportation
    • Dallas ISD uses a hybrid of the above two options

    Will my child have the same bus driver?

    Dallas ISD anticipates the bus drivers will continue serving the same routes this school year. Dallas ISD values the bus drivers who are committed to safely transporting our students.

    What are the possible benefits of Dallas ISD managing its own transportation?

    The district would have more control, adaptability and accountability over the bus routes and transportation system.

    Could there be any challenges during this transition?

    Dallas ISD recognizes the potential challenges of transporting nearly 30,000 students every day on more than 800 bus routes. The district is committed to proactively addressing any transportation-related issues that may arise. As always, student safety remains the top priority.
