The National School Transportation Association (NSTA) was founded in 1964 by school bus contractors to “promote and foster the highest degree of safety in the transportation of school children.” NSTA works with Federal and state legislatures, Federal agencies, the public sector, and other interested parties to bring about industry-wide improvements in all areas of pupil transportation.

Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia (a Washington, D.C., suburb), NSTA serves as the trade organization for school bus contractors which are companies that own and operate school buses and contract with school districts to provide the pupil transportation service.

NSTA membership reflects the great diversity in the industry today. Members range from small one or two bus family-operated fleets to larger corporate entities operating over 1,000 school buses in multiple states.
