    The Cyr Foundation and the
    New York Association for Pupil Transportation Present:

    This year's theme of Follow The Yellow Bus Road reminds us of the fact that we are all together on our journey to keeping children safe and that together we can succeed and make everything better.  

    The tie to the Wizard of Oz also reminds each of us that we have the talents and passion and courage to do what is right and what keeps children safe---all right inside of us.  During the Conference and other programs, we should take time to remind ourselves of that fact and encourage growth and the highest levels of professionalism For the Children!

    The New York Annual School Transportation Conference will be held on July 15-19, 2017 at the Albany Marriott at 189 Wolf Road in Albany, New York!  The NYAPT Trade Show will be held on Monday, July 17th in the Ballroom of the Marriott.

    This year's theme FOLLOW THE YELLOW BUS ROAD is an invitation to take the route of the yellow bus. Follow that route to safe transport, to stop bullying and to a better start to the school day for the children of our state. In this year's conference, that road will lead to excellent training, real connections with colleagues and a deeper commitment to pupil transportation. That road will lead our attendees through a trade show that is our own kind of emerald city – our Chrome Yellow City. A place where individuals from all walks of the pupil transportation industry can come together to achieve excellence and our vendor members have a chance to really shine!
