School bus service at DISD
The school bus service 2017/18 for drop off only is going to start at the same time as the afternoon programme on Sunday, October 1st, 2017.
NEW! Single tickets for the school bus
Due to the high request for single tickets and to make the booking more convenient for you, we are selling from now on single tickets as five-packs for AED 130. Bookings for single trips will be done at the school bus office, The five.-packs are available from Mrs Widera at the cashier’s office. They are transferable and valid for the whole school year 2016/17.
- 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.
