The Hutto ISD Transportation Department is responsible for the safe and timely transportation of students attending Hutto ISD schools. We’d like to take this time to update you on our services, rules for riding the bus and changes taking place for the 15-16 school year.
Recognizing that Hutto ISD continues to grow and change, each year the Director of Transportation conducts an efficiency study to help identify the best ways to streamline and improve operations while continuing to ensure safe and reliable service for all Hutto students who are eligible for bus transportation. Service parameters and changes for the 2015-16 school year are included below:
Eligibility Transportation is available for students who live two miles or more from their assigned school. The distance a student lives from their assigned school is determined by measuring from the curb at the front of the school to the curb in front of their home using the closest paved street. Students residing within two miles of their assigned school may have transportation available if their neighborhood qualifies as hazardous under the district's hazardous transportation rating system. This includes areas that must cross train tracks, major highways, and more. Please visit our website to learn more about the hazardous transportation rating system.
Bus Route Criteria
Elementary students may be required to walk up to 1/4 of a mile to a bus stop. Secondary students may be required to walk up to 1/2 of a mile. Assigning students to a specific route and bus stop addresses critical safety concerns for students who ride the bus, and allows school leaders to better communicate and serve families when a delay or other changes in service are experienced. It is important that your child know and use his or her assigned bus stop and bus route.

CLARK'S CROSSING AND CAROL MEADOWS NEIGHBORHOODS:
With the completion of sidewalks and the addition of a Adult Crossing Guard at Carol Dr. and Mager Lane, this neighborhood is now a school walk zone. Please allow time to take several practice walks with your students to and from the school before school starts.
Veterans Hill routes include DUAL LANGUAGE STOPS. Students who do not find stops should contact Transportation.
