Stop-Arm Camera Hearings:

Due to unfortunate COVID-19 situation and considering everyone’s safety, the Austin Independent School District’s Administrative Hearing Office is currently not able to support hearings with citizens in person. In order to better serve the citizens of Austin, everyone will receive a separate hearing notification. Scheduled in-person hearings will, and in the future may, be re-scheduled as hearings by video or by telephone if the alleged violator lacks the technology to participate by video conference.

Welcome to the Austin ISD Transportation Department homepage! 

Austin ISD transports nearly 23,000 students daily on nearly 500 buses. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable and professional transportation for our students; all buses have seat belts.

To find your student's bus stop, please use our bus stop finder utility. Enter your student's home address and find the closest AISD bus stop.

Students riding or waiting on an AISD school bus are under the supervision of the district the same as if they are in the school building or on the school grounds, and therefore, are subject to the student disciplinary policies of the district.
