Record Attendance At NYAPT Winter Workshop – Thousands Raised for Scholarship Fund

More than 180 School Transportation Professionals hailing from Western New York to Eastern Long Island gathered at the Mariott Hotel on Wolf Road in Albany for the NYAPT Winter Workshop on February 23rd and 24th.  The record attendance demonstrated the continuing effort of the pros to keep New York’s School Bus transportation the safest in the nation.

Seminars ranging in driver training to security concerns and handling the ever-changing needs of student riders marked the two day event.  Prior to that, Associate Enrichment Workshops were held on Tuesday and Wednesday with full day programs designed specifically for Dispatchers and Technicians.
