• Bastrop ISD outsources student transportation to our partner, GoldStar Transit (GST). 

    GoldStar Transit is the premier provider of school bus transportation in Texas, providing everything from home to school transportation and management services to public charter transportation. We are aiming to change the culture of school transportation, creating an atmosphere focused on compassion with an emphasis on caring for the Texas school children who ride our buses every day. At GoldStar Transit, we believe that the school bus is an extension of the classroom; a student’s first and last class of the day is their ride on the bus. We value the importance of gaining the trust of the schools, the parents, and the children. Our vision of student transportation focuses on the well being of our passengers, with regard to both their physical and emotional safety. We believe that a positive experience on the school bus carries into the classroom, and nurtures a positive experience at school.

    Our core values are:

    • Passenger Safety
    • Operational Excellence
    • Community Partnership
    • Highest Level of Employee Training
    • Superb Fleet Maintenance
    • Honesty & Integrity
