ABA Sends Letters of Support for STOP for School Buses Act to Capitol Hill

ABA sent a letter of support to all Congressmen for the STOP for School Buses Act of 2019 in the House by Reps. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) and Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) and in the Senate by Sens. Todd Young (R-Ind.) and Gary Peters (D-Mich.). The bill focuses on the most significant issue facing school transportation today – the illegal passing of stopped school buses, requiring the U.S. DOT to review all the issues and laws pertaining to illegal passing and make recommendations on best practices to Congress. Read the letter.

Mission

ABA is continually looking for ways to meet your ever growing needs in this industry. An analysis of ABA member companies showed that our current members operate between 10,000 and 15,000 school buses in addition to their motorcoach fleets. The ABA School Bus Council was created in celebration of this operational diversity and to provide an opportunity for all motorcoach operators who have school bus operations to meet and discuss issues impacting the industry and operators, including Department of Transportation-related issues, as well as state and local issues unique to school bus operations

Membership
