NAPT Foundation

As leaders from every facet of the pupil transportation industry, the safety of your children is our highest priority. The NAPT Foundation is committed to the advancement of pupil transportation safety through its mission to:

  • Provide resources to help inform local communities about the benefits of school bus transportation
  • Conduct research regarding the use of environmentally friendly and safer school buses
  • Provide additional training and educational opportunities for pupil transportation professionals
As a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization, we seek the support of industry organizations as well as local and national parenting advocate groups to bring this issue to the forefront of educational and government leaders. Working in conjunction with the National Association for Pupil Transportation, we will work together with school officials and school bus industry professionals to educate parents and the public about these issues and provide ways to enhance their local efforts.

Together, we can see the day when the importance of our children's safety becomes the most essential factor influencing schools and parents across the country.
