Conferences/Events

The National School Transportation Association hosts several live events each year. These live events give our members the opportunity to gain timely information related to student transportation and offer a high level of personal engagement with peers, industry experts, and vendors - who offer useful services to help support their school bus contracting. In addition, our live events include plenty of networking opportunities in exciting venues across the country.

NSTA Capitol Hill Bus-In

03 Jul, 2022 — 03 Jul, 2022 (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)
  • NSTA hosts a Capitol Hill Bus-In that is set in conjunction with the Congressional calendar (usually March or April), and gives participants a chance to engage with policy-makers - who impact pupil transportation. This event highlights the importance of the NSTA Advocacy Team, and its efforts to support private school bus contracting throughout the country. This year, NSTA hosted the 2022 NSTA Capitol Hill Bus-In for the first time since 2019, and even though our schedule was different than it has been in previous years, the event had the most attendees in event history.
  • NSTA also presented four Bronze Bus awards to Senators Gary Peters (MI) and Todd Young (IN), and House Members Julia Brownley (CA-26) and Jackie Walorski (IN-2). Senators Peters and Young, as well as Congresswoman Brownley provided videotaped remarks, in which you can find on our YouTube Channel. To follow the week’s events on social media, use #NSTAOnTheHill to see all the activity that occurred. Thank you to our attendees, sponsors, speakers, agency partners, and elected officials who made this event possible!
