            The mission of the KISD Transportation Department is to provide safe, efficient and caring transportation for all school children. 

Director's Message:  The Transportation Department is an important member of the educational team, which includes the school district and community.  We will continue to strive for excellence and are always looking for more efficient ways to improve our operation, while at the same time, placing the safety of our students and employees first.  We take seriously the trust and confidence that the parents and community have placed in us to transport what is most precious to us:

Please remember to always stop for a school bus when the red flashings lights are activated.  This means that students are loading or unloading the school bus.  It is against the law to pass a school bus while the red flashing lights are on.

The KISD Transportation Department has a reputation of transporting students all over Texas safely and efficiently.  Please thank a bus driver/bus aide for their dedication of transporting these students in a caring manner.
