Bus Practice Runs

Fort Worth, Texas - Fort Worth ISD buses will conduct practice “dry runs” on Friday, August 17, 2018, in preparation for the start of school on Monday, August 20. Buses will run at the regularly scheduled times giving parents and students an opportunity to ride the bus together for familiarization.

“Our bus drivers will be practicing their normal routes on that day,” said Transportation Director Bill Ray. “This is something we do every year in preparation for the start of school.”

These “dry runs” are great opportunities for parents to help students understand the route in a less stressful environment, especially for students who may be riding a bus for the first time.

The routes are posted on the Transportation page of the District’s web site, or are available at your local school office.

Note: News media are also invited to ride any bus on this date.
