Welcome to the National School Transportation Association’s Press Room!? This page is designed to specifically address questions from the press about school bus contracting and its function in our school systems across the country.? You will find a list of frequently asked questions and additional resources to find school bus safety statistics and national requirements.? Please keep in mind that many school bus requirements are state specific, so in many cases, reporters are best suited to contact their state’s Department of Transportation or local school district directly.?
The National School Transportation Association does not survey, house, or evaluate data on national school bus statistics.? NSTA has published formal position statements and comments to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on several issues such as: Obstructive Sleep Apnea; Entry Level Driver Training; and Occupant Protection.? These resources can be found under the Issues and Advocacy tab.?
