The goal of the Transportation Department is to provide the safest, most reliable service possible for the students of New Caney ISD. The transportation department is responsible for transporting nearly 9,000 students to and from school each day.
New Caney ISD Offers Parent Portal for SMARTtag™ Transportation SystemNew Caney ISD’s partnership with SMARTtag™ allows parents/guardians the opportunity to view their child’s transportation data through a secure, online Parent Portal. Through SMARTtag™ Parent Portal, parents/guardians can view current bus information and sign up for notifications when their child’s bus is nearing its stop. Parents are also able to manage trusted guardians who are authorized to assist their young child at the bus stop.To access the Parent Portal, please click HERE.
Students will not be re-issued Smart Tag ID's every school year. Please hang on to your child's current Smart Tag over the summer. Smart Tag ID's may be purchased at any campus during the 22-23 school year. Transportation Services will no longer sell Smart Tag ID's.
