What We're Offering! The Winter Workshop:
The Winter Workshop is a NYAPT tradition, bringing key school transportation information and knowledge to supervisors and managers of school bus operations. This mid-year program is a great educational and networking opportunity! It serves as a refresher for managers on important transportation program elements and it's highly instructive for all levels of administrative/supervisory staff in your department.
