School bus service at DISD

  • Our optional School Bus Service is available to all DISD pupils as well as Kindergarten children. It operates in the residential areas in Dubai in which most DISD families live. Unfortunately, it is not possible to operate in all residential areas in Dubai.
  • The children will be collected and dropped off at defined bus stops that are as close to the residential location as possible. The individual collection and arrival times for the next school year will be definitively determined and informed to the parents at the end of August.
  • The Mercedes-Benz school buses used are the property of the DISD and correspond to the latest safety regulations of the RTA (Road and Transport Authority) in Dubai. All buses are equipped with 3-point safety belts. The bus drivers and bus conductors are employed by the DISD and are carefully chosen and trained.

 

NEWS: 

The school bus service 2018/19 for “drop off only” is going to start at the same time as the afternoon program on September 30th, 2018.

The invoices sent out for the school bus service 2018/19 accidentally account for a wrong amount. The fee for the full bus service is 11,018 AED for the full school year 2018/19. The invoice stated 10.855 AED. The difference, amounting to 163 AED will be added to the invoice the the second term. Thank you for your understanding.

If you use the bus service only partially, the fees are calculated proportionally:
