Ride 360 App

Tyler ISD uses Ride 360, an app that allows a streamlined flow of communication for you when your child rides the bus. The app uses GPS data and contains your child's bus route information as they travel throughout the district.

Bus Request Denial Appeal
If you received a denial for bus services & would like to restate your case for an exception, please e-mail John Bagert, Director of Transportation, stating the specific reasons why you feel an exception should be granted. Those approved for an exception will not be provided transportation until after the first week of school.

***Please do not call the Transportation Department as we experience heavy call volumes & will not be able to consider exceptions via the telephone.

Tyler ISD provides bus transportation for eligible students. This video highlights proper bus conduct for our students. En Español

Bus Seat Safety
Due to the laws and liabilities associated with transporting small students, we do not transport Pre-K and Head Start students. Those students are 4 yrs. old or younger and require car seats that the buses do not have. After age 4, the seat belts provided in the buses are sufficient. Buses without passenger seat belts (pre-2018 model years) are grandfathered to the previous laws not requiring seat belts for students older than 4.

We will transport kindergarten students as long as they have an older sibling riding on the bus attending the same campus.

The only exceptions to this requirement will be special needs and McKinney-Vento students. Those are addressed on a case-by-case basis.

Department Overview

The mission of the Transportation Department is to provide safe, reliable and quality service in a caring environment for students, staff, and community through a well-trained, professional and positive staff that exceeds customers’ needs in the most cost effective manner.
