LPSS Transportation Updates

The Lafayette Parish School System’s 521-RIDE bus information call center is now available for parents who have questions about their child’s bus transportation. Representatives of the call center are available Monday-Friday between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM. If you have more detailed questions or concerns you can email our routing department at

Bus information can also be obtained by visiting the district’s website at By clicking on the 521-RIDE banner on the district’s home page, parents can access the eLink bus stop locator and bus driver contact information. Additionally, the recently updated satellite bus stop information link can be found here. Parents who have access to the Parent Portal or who register for Parent Portal can access their child’s bus information through this link.

Bus information is uploaded into the Parent Portal and eLink databases each night, so parents may not see their child’s information for 24 hours. It is also important for parents to know that bus information is not available for their child unless the student is registered in the district’s computer database, and their child is tagged as a bus rider. Staff at the child’s base school can assist parents with these tasks.
