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 services to your community.  Contracting is an excellent option that is both cost effective and flexible. Please view the links below to determine how outsourcing will effect your school.  Whether you are looking to change a route or trying to change your transportation service all together, these tools will help you make an informed decision. 


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.  To download this rich booklet of information, please click here.
