Mission Statement

NYAPT is dedicated to the support, development and representation of the professionals who are responsible for the safe and efficient transportation of our school children.


April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

According to the National Safety Council, every day, at least nine Americans die and 100 are injured in distracted driving crashes. Cell phones, dashboard touchscreens, voice commands and other in-vehicle technologies pose a threat to our safety. The consequences of those distractions are not worth the convenience they offer. Ignore the distractions and #justdrive to keep us all safer on the roads.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April is a united effort to recognize the dangers of and eliminate preventable deaths from distracted driving. Join us to help save lives.

Remind your drivers that distraction by a bus driver can cause an accident.   More importantly, remind your bus drivers to drive defensively to avoid accidents caused by the motoring public who are not as well trained or aware of the dangers of distracted driving.  Check out the distracted driving powerpoint presentation on the NYAPT website.  This is a great training presentation for your drivers!  Click on RESOURCES on the home page or click on Distracted-Driving-Prevention-FINAL-1.pptx to view.

Above all, be safe out there!

It Starts With Us

Presidents Theme

A Students Education Day starts with us, Safety starts with us and Leadership starts with us.

To share a quote with you, one I read in a trade journal years ago:  “The Doors to Education are painted Yellow”, I realize how true that is, think about that.  Without us, children would not have a safe ride to and from school each day!  

Over the past 2 years I have done my best to learn how to be an informed leader for this Association we call NYAPT, Our family.  I learned by talking to members who are invested in and belong to, this wonderful Association.  I have learned from our members who care and are passionate about what they do every day. 

It starts with us.
Each and every person in our NYAPT family needs to play a role in our success.
