The district makes school bus transportation available to all students living two or more miles from school. This service is provided at no cost to students.
Bus routes and stops will be designated annually, and any subsequent changes will be posted at the school. For the safety of the operator of the vehicle and all passengers, students must board buses only at authorized stops, and drivers must unload passengers only at authorized stops.
A parent may also designate a child-care facility or grandparent’s residence as the regular pickup and drop-off location for his or her child. The designated facility or residence must be on an approved stop on an approved route. For information on bus routes and stops or to designate an alternate pickup or drop-off location, you may contact GoldStar Transit at 817-245-1180.
See the Student Code of Conduct for provisions regarding transportation to the DAEP.
Students are expected to assist district staff in ensuring that buses remain in good condition and that transportation is provided safely. GoldStar Transit is authorized by Burleson ISD to handle any disciplinary issues that may occur while students are using this service.
When riding in school buses, students are held to the dress code and behavioral standards established in the BISD Student Handbook and the Student Code of Conduct.
