2014 Annual Conference




visit to register.

It’s conference time again and we are planning to bring you a great conference once again this year!  As our logo suggests, this year’s conference theme is tied to the fact that 2014 marks the 75th Anniversary of the Yellow School Bus and we are planning events and learning opportunities that commemorate that milestone.

We encourage you to register prior to June 15th (extended!) to take advantage of the ‘early bird’ registration fee.

Our new Conference home — the ALBANY MARRIOTT – is a familiar place to many of our members.  All of our Conference and Trade Show events will be held at the Albany Marriott at 189 Wolf Road in Albany and we are very excited about being in our new location!  We think you will enjoy the Marriott—it is a well-appointed hotel property with plenty of overnight rooms to accommodate the needs of our attendees.

Program Highlights
We are planning some 32 workshops and we will be sharing the full conference agenda and guest speakers as they are confirmed and locked in!  We are focusing this year on topics related to safety practices, management and efficiency, special needs transportation, security and bullying, among others.  We are planning on a strong presence of our state agency partners as well as exciting social events including a Family Picnic!! (More on that later!)

There is nothing at all quite like the networking and sharing that goes on at an Annual Conference.  Come join your colleagues at the Annual School Transportation Conference brought to you by the Cyr Foundation in partnership with the New York Association for Pupil Transportation.

We encourage you to register prior to June 15 to take advantage of the ‘early bird’ registration fee.  If you need any assistance navigating the registration process, feel free to call 518-463-4937 or email ( the NYAPT office!
