    Student Badge for Transportation:

    Houston ISD Transportation Services has announced that it is launching a new Student Badge Program for HISD bus riders. Part of a continued effort to provide better service to students, the program will provide the district with real-time ridership data — information that is essential to improving bus routing, analyzing bus utilization, and providing accurate ridership data to the state. But more importantly, it will give us a renewed focus on safety as it lets us track when and where students get on and off the bus and alert parents who sign up for the service with real-time notifications via text or email. 


    Badge distribution will take place during the second half of October. However, actual badge use and associated tracking will be rolled out in phases, allowing Transportation Services time to refine the program and address unforeseen issues.


    See the additional resources below for more information on this new initiative:


    • Instructional Video: 30-second instructional video showing students how to scan their badges when getting on and off the bus. This video can be played in classrooms and at school assemblies and posted on your social media pages and school websites.
    • FAQ: Common questions and answers associated with the Student Badge Program. This document can prove helpful in answering student and parent questions and can be posted on your website or distributed to parents. Click here to download the FAQ in English.
    • Information Sheet: A one-page fact sheet with basic information about the Student Badge Program. This can be can be posted on your website or distributed to parents. Click here to download the flyer in English. Haga clic aquí para descargar el folleto en español.


    As Houston ISD rolls out this new program, your support and feedback will be crucial. We hope this packet of materials — combined with the information available at www.houstonisd.org/transportation — will help you understand the program.
