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.


It's a diamond anniversary!  Join us in commemorating this 60th year of pupil transportation education!

  • Special Elections Change State Politics:  On April 24th, there were numerous special elections to fill seats in the Senate and Assembly that are currently vacant.  The Assembly races, while always important, were less consequential than the two held for Senate seats.  Those two seats could affect the political balance in the Senate, especially in light of the recent reconciliation among the Democratic members of the Senate..

  • NHTSA & NTSB Appointments:  President Trump has nominated Jennifer Homendy to serve as the newest commissioner on the National Transportation Safety Board.  Homendy currently serves as Minority staff director of the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials for the U.S. House's Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

    He recently noted that he would also appoint Heidi King to serve as the new Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  King currently serves as the Deputy Administrator of the agency which has been without a leader since January 2017 when Mark Rosekind stepped down.  King has earlier served in the US Office of Management and Budget under three presidents and has a personal experience as an EMT in New Jersey, giving her insights into accidents and accident investigations.

As we all “start our engines” to provide students across the State a safe ride to and from school…let’s remember how we make it happen. You know, “The under the hood” stuff. That is all of you!!   I encourage you to remain active and up-to-date on all aspects of transportation. Your association provides you the road map to success!!  Be an active member of your local Chapter meetings, sign-up for a Webinar, join a Committee, be present at a Board Meeting, or attend a Conference. If your anything like me, do them all. These tools help to accelerate your passion, your drive and your minds!!
