The Dripping Springs ISD Transportation Department has the tremendous responsibility of transporting our students to and from school each day. Ensuring their safety is our highest priority. In our continuous efforts to meet our goals and exceed our community’s expectations, we often research current market systems, explore new solutions, and examine best practices in the school bus transportation industry. As such, we have identified a solution that is one of the most technologically advanced and comprehensive systems available today to facilitate transportation and enhance student safety: Secured Mobility Authorized Ridership Technology, or SMART tags. We firmly believe the new system will not only increase our efficiency, it will provide parents with added confidence in our transportation services, and most importantly, help increase student safety.
Students currently enrolled for transportation services will be provided with a SMART tag ID badge at no charge. A SMART tag ID badge is required each time a student enters and exits the bus. Information on how to obtain a replacement badge is detailed in our 'Frequently Asked Questions."
Parents who have questions or concerns about the SMART tag system not addressed here may contact the Dripping Springs ISD Transportation Department at 512.858.3004, or via email.
