Bus Transportation for Choice Schools

Bus transportation is offered free for all students attending a Choice School or Program. Students living inside and outside SAISD boundaries can use the bus. No sign-up is needed — just show up at the pick-up location nearest your home or workplace.

The SAISD Transportation Department delivers your child to school safely, on time, and in a frame of mind ready to learn! Additionally, all buses are equipped with Wi-Fi and offer many safety features for your peace of mind. Click here to learn more.

How It Works

1. In the morning, students board the school bus from one of many pick-up locations throughout the District. All locations are SAISD schools.

2. With staff supervision, students switch buses at a central “hub” location.

3. The second bus takes students to their Choice School destination. Students arrive at their Choice School before classes start.

4. In the afternoon, the process runs in reverse and students are dropped off at their original location.

Bus Schedules

Bus routes for Elementary Schools & Academies are separate from those for Middle Schools and High Schools. This means that younger children do not ride the bus with older children. Click below to view the schedules for the 2021-22 school year. Schedules for 2022-23 will be posted in early August.

Map of SAISD Schools

Many San Antonio ISD schools serve as pick-up/drop-off locations for Choice bus routes.

Use the map to find a school near your work or home. Then, check the bus schedule to see if that school is a stop. Then, note the bus number and AM pick-up/PM drop-off time.


For help finding your nearest pick-up location, or for other questions, contact the SAISD Enrollment Office. We’re ready to help!
