Transportation Notifications

Stay Updated

     Get information about your child's bus route delivered to your phone or email! The DPS Transportation Department has two ways to keep track, Nixle and Here Comes the Bus. For the most efficient use of these services, use them both to best stay informed. 


     Nixle is a system that allows parents to opt in to receiving updates via cell phone or email. You must opt in (sign up) to receive these notifications; you will need to do this on an annual basis, as routes change.

Please note: Message rates may apply based on individual carriers.

  2. Complete the Nixle form on the next page and submit info. You may select to receive text or email notifications, or both. You do NOT have to fill in the zip code field, but you MUST select the check box accepting the Nixle terms and conditions.
  3. Text alerts: After submitting the form, you will receive a confirmation SMS message. Reply YES to finish the process.
  4. Email alerts: After submitting the form, you will receive an email whenever an alert is sent to the particular group where you signed up. Be sure to check your spam file in order to make sure these messages aren't being blocked, or add to your "allow" list.
