LIH Transportation

The Lycée International de Houston is pleased to offer bus service to and from campus through TMI Transportation, servicing families who live further south, east, north or west of our campus. All students are eligible to ride the bus, including our three-year-olds. Our older students take great pride in caring for and helping our younger students.

La Crèche/18 months and TPS/Prekindergarten 2 children are not eligible for bus transportation.

Pick-up & Drop-off Times

School begins at 7:50 a.m. Parents who wish to drop off their children themselves are welcome to LIH as early as 7:30. We provide free childcare during this time. After 7:50 a.m., parents must sign in their child at the reception desk.

Additionally, LIH offers three pick-up times after school: 3:15, 4:30, and 5:30. This allows parents to arrive at LIH at their convenience, yet prevents interruption of students’ after-school programming. Students who remain on campus after 3:15 will take part in our after-school study halls, childcare, and activities. Parents need to complete a Pick-Up Timings Form on My Backpack to notify LIH when they will be picking-up their child(ren).

Bus Transportation is now available at LIH!  

Through our partnership with TMI Transportation, we are able to provide luxury bus transportation to students. We offer both group and door-to-door pickup service.

Pick up and drop off times will vary by location. For more information or to register for bus transportation, please contact School Life at SchoolLife@lihouston.org.
