Welcome! 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 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.
NYAPT issues press statement to recognize the beginning of the 2016-2017 School Year and the hard work of all involved in school transportation safety!
The 2017 Annual Conference will be held at the Albany Marriott on July 15-19, 2017!
