Walk-to-Stop Policy

Leander ISD's walk-to-stop policy has set up bus stops so that elementary students have to walk a maximum of two long blocks (or two-tenths a mile) to their stop, while secondary students are required to walk a maximum of five-tenths a mile (or five long blocks) to their bus stop.

If you consider that we do not transport students living inside a two-mile radius of our schools, you see that this walk-to-stop policy is only asking that elementary students walk one-tenth as far to bus stops, as we ask many LISD students to walk back and forth to school each day.

The result is fewer buses returning to campuses at less than capacity due to time constraints - and this saves important taxpayer dollars. (Please note that bus routes for special needs students will operate as they have in past years.) 

Hazardous Routes

2018-2019 School Year

Due to improvement of safe routes, transportation service will not be provided in 2018–19 for certain neighborhoods zoned to the following schools:

Leander High School

    Within 2 miles of the school to the east of Bagdad Road and north of Crystal Falls Parkway. This includes the streets in and around Los Vista Drive, Bonita Verde Drive, High Chaparral Drive, and S. West Drive due to the completion of sidewalks along Bagdad Road within the last two years. Map

    Cedar Park Ranchettes and Deerfield Park neighborhoods due to the completion of sidewalks along Bagdad Road within the last two years. Map

    Within 2 miles of the school in the Fairways neighborhood due to the completion of construction in the neighborhood. Map

 

Naumann Elementary School

    Cypress Bend Neighborhood with the addition of crossing guards to assist students crossing Cypress Creek Road. Extended school zone time frames along Cypress Creek Road to include elementary school hours have been recommended. Bus service was grandfathered for the 2017-2018 school year due to no changes in the "Not Eligible for Transportation" zone (NET Zone) and an oversight by administration. Map

 

Reed Elementary School

    Regal Parc Apartments due to the completion of an access gate between the apartments and Reed Elementary. Map

 

Running Brushy Middle School

    Timberline East neighborhood. The addition of crossing guards to assist students crossing Bagdad Road at Osage Drive has been recommended. Map

    Along Oakwood Drive, Adrian Drive, Castlewood Trail and Oak Hollow Drive due to the completion of sidewalks along Bagdad Road within the last two years. Map

    Coventry, High Meadows and Deerfield Park neighborhoods. The addition of crossing guards to assist students crossing Bagdad Road at New Hope Drive has been recommended. Map

    Cedar Ridge Apartments. The addition of crossing guards to assist students crossing Bagdad Road at Osage Drive has been recommended. Map

 

Note: The 37 routes under the "Continuance" label received transportation last year, and since there have not been significant improvements to these areas, they will continue to receive transportation for the 2018-2019 school year or until conditions change.

Bus Routes (InfoFinderi)

infofinderi logoLeander ISD's TransFinder's InfoFinder i software allows LISD parents to get information on their students' bus stop locations and times by simply entering their street address and the student's grade level.

TransFinder will then give you a map showing your child's assigned elementary or secondary bus stop.

Lost and Found

If your student has lost or found an item on the bus please have them inform their bus driver. Drivers are asked to maintain a log of any items that are lost or found on their buses. Parents may also contact the Transportation office at 512-570-0700.

Bus Safety

Student safety is the primary concern of the Transportation Department. Statistics show that the most dangerous time for students is before entering or after exiting the bus. The Transportation Department considers the environment and age of the students when determining bus stops.

The department attempts to place every bus stop at a location with reasonable safety assurances for students. Parents must assume the responsibility for their students traveling back and forth from home to the stop. Students are expected to be at their stops five minutes before the scheduled time of the bus arrival.
