The Yellow School Bus is an American Icon. It is a symbol of school bus safety but also is an iconic image of American Education and our schools.  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 it is our role as school transportation professionals to ensure that that the school bus ride should be a safe and secure ride.


Saying thanks for more than two decades of commitment, boundless dedication and service to those who deliver our children safely to school each day. 

Join us in celebrating the career of
Peter Mannella.

September 28th at the Albany Marriott

  • Our current Executive Director (Peter Mannella) and our incoming Executive Director (David Christopher) met on September 11th with the co-chairs of the Regents Sub-Committee on State Aid.  The meeting was at the invitation of the co-chairs to discuss NYAPT’s proposals for state aid considerations as the Regents prepare their School Aid proposal for the 2019-2020 budget period, which will be unveiled at the Board’s December meeting. 

  • In the recent report of the State Comptroller in review of the administration of transportation services in seven districts, there were several important issues referenced indicating that some or all of the districts were not in complete compliance.  We will be discussing these and other issues that arose from the Comptroller’s report in future issues as well as in trainings, webinars and conferences.  Chapters are urged to have discussions to share best practices among your members and then also share them with the Board for wider dissemination among the membership.  It takes a team!

The Cyr Foundation and NYAPT proudly gathered over 260 school transportation professionals at the Albany Marriott on July 14-18 for education, partnering, networking and sharing of ideas to keep children safe on their way to school every day!
