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 more than 25 million schoolchildren who ride more than 480,000 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. NSTA is honored to be one of the ASBC Council Members since its inception.
