Sands CISD Transportation

Welcome to the Sands CISD Transportation Department’s web-site.  Take a few minutes to view our site
and if you should have any further questions or comments, feel free to contact us here at transportation. 
Here at transportation, we are well aware that you have entrusted us with the most precious cargo that
can be transported, your children.  We are dedicated to fulfilling our mission statement and want each
and every student to have an enjoyable ride to and from school.  However, it takes the cooperation of
the students, parents and transportation employees working together to make this possible.  I ask that
you take a few minutes to review the rider rules with your student(s).  These rules can be found on our
web-site or in your student handbook.



It is the mission of the Sands Consolidated Independent School District’s Transportation Department
to provide safe, efficient and customer friendly service in support of the district’s educational goals.




Sands CISD transports students from three different counties in the West Texas area...
Dawson, Martin and Howard. The transportation department transports students to and
from school on a daily basis utilizing 4 regular routes.  Besides our day-to-day operations of transporting students to school, the district provides transportation for numerous
extra-curricular activities, athletic events and after school programs.  This past year, the
department accumulated many miles on our school buses transporting students.  The
department is also responsible for the maintenance and upkeep on 6 school buses and
4 auxiliary vehicles.

Bus Route Designs
Bus routes are created to enhance student safety while maximizing vehicle efficiency.
Stop s
are created that allow students to wait off the main roadway for the bus if at
all possible.  Stops
are also created to minimize students walking in highly
traveled roadways for long distances
without sidewalks.
