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.

Please see the attachment for information about our before and after school program with After 3.
Our new school hours are 8:25am - 3:50pm.
After 3 provides a safe and monitored space for students. Reminder that students are not monitored before 8:05am or after 4:00pm
Thank you so much!
