Austin ISD buses without air conditioning will be replaced if the bond is approved in November’s election

According to county officials, 173 school buses will be replaced if voters pass the proposed school bond in November.

AUSTIN, Texas – It’s been a hot start to the school year for Austin I.S.D Students. About 8,000 AISD students board school buses without air conditioning.

According to county officials, if the voters happen that proposed school loan 173 school buses will be replaced in the upcoming elections in November.

AISD Executive Director of Transportation Kris Hafezizadeh said bus rides without air conditioning can be uncomfortable.

“If we don’t have air conditioning, roll down the windows,” Hafezizadeh said. “We have 550 buses. Seventy percent of our entire fleet has air conditioning, including 100 percent of our specialty buses, which have always had air conditioning,” he said.

If the bond is passed, 100% of the fleet will be air-conditioned.

Austin ISD’s historic bond offering of $2.44 billion roughly matches that of the district four recent bonds combined.

The 2022 bond is divided into three sets:

  • Proposal A: All Purpose ($2,316,025,000)
  • Proposal B: Technology ($75,541,000)
  • Offer C: Stadiums and Sports Facilities ($47,434,000)

New buses are only a small part of the bond. If voters accept it, nearly $25.74 million of proposed bond funding in Proposal A would be used to purchase new buses.

“When we buy new buses, they all come with air conditioning, lap belts, shoulder belts, digital cameras and of course lower emission standards,” Hafezizadeh said.
