As we communicated last May, Eanes ISD has eliminated guest ridership on our school buses and eliminated stops to alternate locations for after-school programs. While we realize this may cause an inconvenience to some families, we made the decision based on bus route and fuel efficiency, management in terms of the amount of consistent riders on our routes, and equal transportation offerings for all of our families.
The definition of a guest rider is a student who rides a bus other than the one they are assigned. If a student remains on his/her assigned bus but gets off at a different stop along the route, which is allowed because he/she is already accounted on that bus.
Thank you for helping us to improve our transportation services and ensure consistent practices!
