Welcome to the Victoria ISD Transportation Department!

We are excited about the opportunity to provide transportation to and from school and other events for the students of our district. As we transport students, everyone in the VISD Transportation Department realizes that we are entrusted with the most precious cargo possible; therefore, we are dedicated to providing professional, safe, quality transportation services. Our interaction with each student contributes to the tone for his or her success in the classroom. A successful Transportation Department is an integral part of the educational process and we will take every step to ensure we deliver students to school safely and efficiently as possible.
