Reopening Texas Schools

Wi-Fi buses were a quick solution for student internet access, but as schools reopen they need their buses back

As more students return to school in person, some school districts are having to trim back programs that deployed buses as hot spots in neighborhoods for students with little or no internet access.

Austin ISD school buses are stationed across the district in high impact areas to provide students with Wi-Fi for online learning. AISD plans on providing Wi-Fi access to students Monday to Friday from 7:30am till 4:30pm, all the way through Oct 5th.
