15th National Congress on School Transportation
Was held May 16-19, 2010
The purpose of the National Congress on School Transportation is to develop national policies and guidelines, operation or design standards, and general policies for the profession - in this case, school transportation. They are typically invitational conferences with attendees being carefully selected for their expertise, leadership and abilities to refine and approve standards and operating procedures for the school transportation industry.
Since 1939, at the first National Congress, and at each subsequent Conference in 1945, 1948, 1951, 1954, 1959, 1964, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010 the same objectives and guiding principles have been used. They are: The transportation of pupils in safety and comfort on safe, economical vehicles can be assured through adequate state regulations governing school bus construction. Safety includes all those factors relating to school bus construction which may directly or indirectly affect the safety and welfare of pupils transported. Economy includes the construction, procurement, operation and maintenance of school buses consistent with the safety and welfare of the pupils.
Each national conference has resulted in one or more publications that contain the recommendations of that particular conference. The 2010/15th, and the 2005/14th National publications are both available for purchase.
