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.
