Welcome to Transportation
The primary goal of the Lake Travis Independent School District's Transportation Department is transport students to and from school safely and efficiently. To accomplish this goal, there are rules and responsibilities for each member of the transportation system which includes staff, students, and parents. We ask parents to become familiar with the rules and procedures and to discuss them with their child(ren).
Lake Travis ISD continues to experience a shortage of bus drivers. This is a challenge currently shared by many school districts across Texas. As a result, the following changes have been made to our transportation services effective for the 2021-2022 school year:
- All routes have been modified from the previous school year.
- Some bus stop locations have been consolidated to main thoroughfares/streets at subdivisions and entrances/exits at gates to subdivisions.
- Bus services in West Cypress Hills for West Cypress Hills Elementary and Bella Colinas for Bee Cave Middle School have been suspended for the 2021-2022 school year.
- We will utilize current drivers and transportation department office staff to operate a second wave of pickups and dropoffs. Be advised, this will alter times to an earlier pickup and later dropoff for some of our student riders.
Parents may access Transfinder to see their student’s bus number, bus stop, and pickup/dropoff times. We will continue to evaluate routes and seat availability as needed.
We are working tirelessly to advertise and recruit drivers. In the meantime, parents are encouraged to transport their children to and from school, if and when possible. We know these modifications to our transportation services may be challenging for some of our families, and we regret any inconvenience as a result of these changes. We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding and support as we continue to do everything possible to safely and efficiently accommodate our increase in student ridership while addressing our driver shortage.
