School bus transportation is a critical component in every successful educational enterprise. It is the direct link between a neighborhood and the classroom. 

By advocating for safe, efficient, and reliable school bus transportation, we are not only ensuring the well-being of our students but also fostering a sense of community and support. The NAPT's Public Policy Agenda serves as a road map for our members to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of student transportation. By staying informed and engaged with these policies, we can continue to uphold the standards of excellence that define our industry.

Together, we can create a brighter future for students across the nation, one bus ride at a time.

Foundational Facts: 

  • The yellow school bus is the safest, most economical, most energy-responsive and most environmentally-friendly way to transport our children to and from school each day.

  • There is an important link between the yellow school bus and the performance of our children in the classroom; ensuring access to the school bus helps to ensure access to educational services and ultimately educational attainment.
  • The color of a school bus is an integral attribute of its unique design and the industry must ensure that the color of a school bus continues to meet its role and objective as a safety factor.
