Welcome! The Yellow School Bus is an American Icon.It represents safety and the best traditions of our schools and education system.
In New York State, over 2.3 million children ride a yellow school bus to and from school each day. We believe that the school bus ride should be a safe and secure ride. We believe that the school bus should be appropriately equipped and carefully maintained for safety. We believe that every school bus driver should be fully qualified, licensed and trained to perform his or her duties. We believe that it is our role as school transportation professionals to ensure that all the elements of a safe and efficient school bus ride are met at all times.
BACK TO SCHOOL!
September is right around the corner! As summer 2015 comes to a close we look forward to a great 2015-16 School year and membership year with NYAPT.
AROUND THE CORNER!
September 8 Press Conferences Across The State!!
This year, we are starting something new in partnership with AAA in New York State. Several AAA local chapters will be partnering with NYAPT Chapters to call attention to the yellow school bus. This effort will also serve to remind motorists to heed the safety rules about school buses, especially those about stopping for our red lights!
