Bus Service

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 subject to change based on operational needs. Please be advised that we do have a small number of buses in our fleet that do not have A/C. Students are allowed and encouraged to bring a water bottle to drink and put on their bodies as they ride, and windows are to be down during the ride to help as much as possible with circulation on these buses. We are in the process of looking into options to upgrade the fleet to add more buses with A/C in the future.

For the safety of the operator of the vehicle and all passengers, students must board buses or other vehicles only at their designated stops, and drivers must unload passengers only at their designated stops. 

The district has identified the following areas where hazardous conditions exist for students who live within two miles of the campus: State Hwy. 123. Students in these areas might encounter hazardous conditions when traveling to and from school independently, the district will provide transportation to these students. Please contact The Transportation Director for additional information.

  • Students may only ride the bus assigned to them. Students may not ride another bus home/to school with a friend/family member. 
  • Students may only get on and off at their designated location.
  • Students must use their student ID (Junior High & High School Students) or bus tag (Elementary & Intermediate Students) to enter and exit the bus. 
  • Students are expected to assist district staff in ensuring that buses and other district vehicles remain in good condition and that transportation is provided safely. When riding in district vehicles, including buses, students are held to behavioral standards established in this handbook and the Student Code of Conduct.
  • Our Transportation Department will continually be working to consolidate stops where locations permit to improve efficiency. Please check your Parent Portal for the most up-to-date information about your child(rens) bus route. 
    • This information will be updated and released for the 2024-2025 school year a few days before  school starts.

How to Register For Transportation Services

Navarro ISD utilizes the Transact Routing system which has two components; the Parent Portal and the BusQuest App. Families must first create a Parent Portal account before accessing the BusQuest App. Please click on the user guide below for more details.  

Please note that your child(ren) must already be registered to attend school at Navarro ISD before you will be able to complete your account setup. Once registered at the campus it will take 24 hours before the information updates with the transportation department. 


Transact Set Up/Registration

  • Navarro ISD families must login to the Transact Parent Portal and request services for their child(ren) each year during the registration process. 
    • Families with multiple children must request services for each child individually. 
  • During the TransAct registration process it will ask you to select if your child(ren) will need transportation in the morning, afternoon, or both. Please choose accordingly.
  • The email address and cell phone number listed on the Transact Parent Portal account is how notifications from the Transportation Department are sent out (Examples: in the event of a mechanical delay, etc... ). Please make sure you list the email and number you check regularly in these steps.

This training helps to ensure that riding a school bus is the safest way to get to school.
