To standardize school bus driver education, training, and licensing. The Oklahoma Association for Pupil Transportation (OAPT), an alliance of school bus directors, mechanics, and drivers, has joined forces in a dedicated and strategic front to promote bus safety professionally to students across our state.
OAPT plays an active role in the safety process for our state's pupil transportation. Our presence is not motivated by large budgets, prestige, or public recognition. Collectively, our body of members is inspired by the essential resource that our state has...our children.
We have taken and will continue to take a firm stance on the education of and prevention of accidents and injury that can occur to our children through negligence and irresponsibility.
We sincerely hope that through standardized drivers' education courses, both online and onsite, and adoption of best safety practices, Oklahoma pupil transportation providers will gain the desired confidence, recognition, and respect from their students, school administrators, and communities.
