Cancellation of 2021 National School Bus Illegal Passing Survey

October 12, 2021 9:30 AM | Jennifer Bruce

Montpelier, Vermont – The National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services (NASDPTS) announces the cancellation of the 2021 National School Bus Illegal Passing Survey. NASDPTS made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s survey due to the continued impact of the COVID pandemic on school services as well as the current shortage of school bus drivers and the need to focus all operations on safely transporting students each and every day.

“The National School Bus Illegal Passing Survey is a very important tool in school transportation to not only highlight the safe transportation of students but to also assist in the continued education of motorists about the need to stop for the yellow school bus. As regular operations return, hopefully in 2022, we look to resume the survey at that time,” stated NASDPTS President Pat McManamon.

“Consistent data from one year to the next is very important, but 2020 and 2021 have been anything but normal for school transportation. It is our hope that by delaying our survey to 2022 districts can focus solely on safety at this time,” added NASDPTS Executive Director Ronna Weber.
