BATA and TCAPS are partnering to provide transportation support. Please review the options below to determine which BATA service works best for your transportation needs.


Free Rides:TCAPS students can show their IDs and ride for free on any afternoon fixed route. NOTE: Free rides do not apply to BATA’s Link On-Demand service.  Free ride is good for one-way, and one destination outbound - students should ask for a transfer ticket on their first bus if they plan to transfer to a second bus to their final destination.

This page was updated on 03.29.23 - TCAPS and BATA have extended their partnership until the end of the school year if BATA fits students' needs.  TCAPS afternoon transportation is now also fully available.
