Our future is riding with us!
NYAPT is a membership-based professional association incorporated in 1976 as a “501-c-6” non-profit corporation. NYAPT was first formed in 1974 when several Chapters from across the State informally came together to support the school transportation industry. Our members are employed in school districts, BOCES, community and technical colleges, private school bus operators and community-based programs, and include our industry partners. Our members come from many levels within the school bus industry, including supervisors and managers, mechanics and technicians, trainers and safety specialists, dispatchers and drivers.
