Requesting Transportation

Parents need to register their student for transportation every year.

The Galveston Independent School District provides School Bus transportation to all students that reside in the District who live within a reasonable distance from their school of attendance. School Bus stops are based on population density, direction of travel, and other safety variables. Bus stops are not placed in front of residences, with the exception of students with special needs.

Parents must complete Transportation Registration through Skyward. Click "YES" on the transportation form and fill out completely. If a student will be riding to an approved alternate address ( approved Daycare Facility, grandparents residence ), please fill in the information in the notes section of the form. All data is uploaded nightly to the Transportation Department. Students are usually routed within 24-48 hours. Students will not be allowed Transportation if they have not registered online for the 2020-2021 School Year.
