Welcome to the Transportation Department of Dripping Springs ISD. We are excited about the opportunity to provide transportation for the children of our district to and from school and other events. As we transport students, everyone in the DSISD Transportation Department realizes that we are entrusted with the most precious cargo possible. Our interaction with each student contributes to the tone for his or her success in the classroom. A successful Transportation Department is an integral part of the educational process and we will take every step to ensure we deliver students to school safely and efficiently as possible.
Parents are encouraged to review bus safety guidelines with their children to help ensure a safe and pleasant ride for everyone.
The mission of the Transportation Department is to provide safe and efficient transportation to the students of Dripping Springs Independent School District, in support of the district's educational functions and school activities.
Finding Route Information
To find morning and afternoon routes, select "Bus Routes" on the DSISD homepage, and enter the student's grade and address information. The system should provide the bus number, stop times and stop location. Parents experiencing any difficulty should contact The Transportation Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 512.858.3004 or 512.858.3008. Parents will be notified of any route modifications throughout the school year. Students should be at bus stops 10 minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up as pick-up times can fluctuate due to traffic and other events.
Parameters of Service
