Transportation

IDEA Public Schools is committed to ensuring the safe transportation of your child to and from school.

IDEA Public Schools’ Transportation team is here to safely serve and transport our students. 

To continue doing so, we have updated our transportation protocols by adding increased health and safety guidelines for the 2021-22 school year, which includes spacing out students when possible, and grouping together siblings and students who carpool. 

Bus Safety Protocols

Cleaning Our Buses

At IDEA Public Schools, the journey to and from school is an extension of classroom learning. To help us provide a safe and pleasant bus ride experience for your children, please follow the two steps below to ensure the accuracy of your child’s transportation information:

Log into PowerSchool and click on the transportation tab. From there, you can register for transportation (student route should be available within 2 business days of submission) or verify your child’s bus stop information. Once registered you can move to step 2.

Step 2: "Here Comes The Bus" Application

When your children scans their bus pass, this application allows you to see, in real time, where your child’s bus is and when and where your child got on or off. This easy-to-use technology is free, simply download the “Here Comes the Bus” application on your smartphone, create a secure account, add your children, and you’re all set!

IDEA’s school code for Texas is: 83127
IDEA’s school code for Louisiana is: 87857
