Parking & Transportation
Private Car Drop Off & Pick Up
Parents and others who drive students to and from school are encouraged to carpool and to stop only at designated points. Drivers should drop off and pick up students on Eastside in the transit center. Do not exit your vehicle while in the street in areas identified as “moving traffic” lanes.
The time spent on the bus is considered an extension of the school day. All school rules apply. A student who misbehaves on the bus may lose bus-riding privileges. Metro bus riders will be held to the same standards. Students zoned to Lamar who live more than two miles from school may apply for transportation through their Neighborhood Office. If a student is attending Lamar on a transfer they may apply for transportation through their Neighborhood Office, but please note that not all transfers are eligible for HISD transportation.

When purchasing a parking tag, a student must furnish:

- current proof of liability insurance for the vehicle(s) that the student will be driving, with the student listed as a covered driver
- current registration of the vehicle(s) that the student will be driving.
Students may register an EZtag (or other Texas toll tags) for access or be provided a Lamar parking tag.
