National Association for Pupil Transportation® (NAPT®)

The National Association for Pupil Transportation® (NAPT®) is the world’s premier market space for public and private student transportation service providers and the companies that provide valuable products and services to support safe school transportation. We believe transportation is integral to education, an invaluable component of a successful educational enterprise. Yellow school buses bring nearly 25 million children to and home from school every school day on regular route service; these buses also transport another 3 to 5 million children every school day on activity and field trips.


NAPT is the leading trade association in the student transportation industry, a vibrant and diverse community of people and organizations that share a passion for safe and efficient student transportation. We are a non-profit §501(c)(6) organization dedicated to helping our members engage in and influence policy making that will enhance operational safety and administrative efficiency.

With support of the NAPT Foundation Inc., NAPT’s §501 (c) (3) nonprofit affiliate, NAPT is the premier source of learning, knowledge, and future-oriented research for the student transportation professional and provides resources, education and ideas to enhance the power and performance of the student transportation industry.

NAPT Business Intelligence (NAPTBI LLC), NAPT’s for-profit subsidiary, provides business intelligence that helps student transportation departments operate safely and efficiently, save time and money, and simplify the business of running a student transportation department.
