"Yellow Buses, Red Flags:

New York's School Bus Driver Shortage"



Stop for the Bus!

It is estimated that over 50,000 private vehicles pass stopped school buses with red lights flashing on a typical school day.  With schools opening soon, school buses will be on the road again.  When you see a stopped school bus with red lights flashing, STOP FOR THE BUS! A child’s life depends on it!


The COVID-19 pandemic is causing uncertainty throughout our communities and our industry, but there is one thing we are not uncertain about. School transportation professionals will pull together to get the job done.  As we navigate this crisis together, NYAPT will share information with you regarding school transportation requirements, recommendations and information on the MEMBERS ONLY>COVID-19 GUIDANCE page as soon as it becomes available to us.  Major news developments will appear here on our HOME page.

In the meantime, our thoughts are with all of you as you work through this crisis. Stay safe and don't hesitate to contact your NYAPT organization for guidance - we will endeavor to help and provide information to the greatest extent possible.

NYAPT Partners with

“Busing on the Lookout”

to Do Our Part in Eliminating

Human Trafficking of our Children

Busing on the Lookout (BOTL) is a program designed to address the terrible issue of human trafficking.

There are an estimated 40 million victims of human trafficking globally, including school aged children in the United States. School bus drivers are in the unique position to address this problem. BOLT has developed a training tool to educate and equip members of the school bus transportation industry with the information necessary to enable them to fight human trafficking as part of their everyday jobs.

Click “School Bus Drivers on the Lookout” below to access the BOLT toolkit and learn how to do your part to eliminate human trafficking of our children.
