The goal of schoolbusfacts.com is to provide parents, school administrators, communities, industry stakeholders, media, and legislators with information about the school bus from sources they can trust.
Through a cooperative agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the American School Bus Council developed downloadable resources to help spread the word about school bus ridership. Statistical information contained in schoolbusfacts.com is well-researched, up-to-date, and accurate. These resources have three primary objectives:
Letting communities know about the benefits of school bus ridership.
Informing communities about how to keep children safe in and around the school bus.
Letting others know about the ways they can support the school bus in their community.
The material is available for anyone to use and is free of copyright restrictions. We encourage communities to help spread the word about school bus ridership.
About the American School Bus Council
The American School Bus Council is a coalition of the school transportation community — including public and private transportation providers, school bus manufacturers and state officials responsible for pupil transportation. Council members are committed to providing safe, effective, and efficient transportation for the millions of schoolchildren who ride school buses each day.
The Council’s members include NAPT (National Association for Pupil Transportation), NASDPTS (National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services), NSTA (National School Transportation Association), Blue Bird Corp. of Fort Valley, Ga., IC Bus Corporation of Lisle, Ill., and Thomas Built Buses of High Point, N.C.
The American School Bus Council was formed in 2006 to educate parents, school officials, lawmakers, and the public as a whole about the essential safety, environmental, and equal-access to education benefits of the iconic yellow school bus.
