Bexar County Area Transfer Points

These designated points are used to transfer children from one school district to another school
district by bus, if they are being transported to attend school outside of the district in which they
reside. Each point refers to a specific location identified in the table. Please note that some districts
may have multiple transfer points. This is to accommodate the movement of children over large areas
within the county.
