Join NAPT® this October 18 - 20 in Texas; don't get lost in the crowd – be in the room. We're looking forward to our return to in-person events where together we'll explore 5 of the most pressing issues facing our industry in a post-pandemic era. 
 
All student transportation directors and supervisors are encouraged to attend this intimate event, which is being developed collaboratively with the Texas Association for Pupil Transportation and designed to foster strategic conversations, align our professional insights, and solve the common issues that we all face.

Each attendee will receive two (2) NAPT® PDS electives that can be applied to fulfill certification requirements.

ACTS!® The Road Show topics of discussion will include:
  • Post-pandemic changes in school transportation funding and financing;
  • The future of vehicle design, propulsion and telematics;
  • Data-driven driver recruitment and retention; 
  • Policies, rulings and related legal issues that impact the transportation of students with disabilities; and
  • Opportunities and threats posed by alternatives to traditional school transportation. 

The event will be open to NAPT Members and non-members alike, with early access priority given to NAPT members. Non-member registration opens mid-June.
