Dear School Board Member or School Administrator,
Thank you for visiting NSTA's website. We trust that you are here to learn more about your options when it comes to providing transportation service to your community. Contracting is an excellent option that provides cost savings and a lot of flexibility whether you are looking for a company to take over just one route, to provide management service, or to provide complete transportation service to your community. In the 'Outsourcing Transportation' section of this website, you will find a wealth of information to give you the facts around outsourcing transportation.
In 2013, NSTA released the Yellow School Bus Industry White Paper to provide interested parties with a full scope of resources detailing how the industry is structured and give a "behind the scenes" look at different issues facing contractors today. Topics include: Industry Structure; Drivers and Support Personnel; Buses and Other Equipment; Transportation and the Education Systems; Economic Issues; Outsourcing; and Public Policy Issues.
