Love the Bus 2013: What's on YOUR calendar?

While we can trace the affectionate responses that characterize Valentine's Day to as early as the 15th century, U.S. school transportation enthusiasts have recognized Valentine's Day in a somewhat different way since 2006 with "Love the Bus" events. As homage to our nation's amazing school transportation professionals, we have shared heartfelt stories, sent cards and letters, and held press conferences with dignitaries, like U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, to showcase the importance of the yellow school bus to the American education system.

This year, we'd like to shine the spotlight on LTB events across the nation to help spread the word. If you send us information about your local or statewide events, we'll include them on our website, Facebook page and in our weekly e-newsletter. Please help us chronicle this year's celebration by letting us know when, where and what you are planning to do. (Please send to If you have not celebrated LTB yet, there are many resources at your disposal, including an 8-page How to "Love the Bus" Guide, a lesson plan, templates for making cards, T-shirts and certificates. You'll also find bus driver testimonials, and helpful ways to communicate with and engage your district and your community. You'll find all of this and more at

The American School Bus Council is a coalition created by six partners in 2006 to educate parents, school officials and lawmakers about the essential role the yellow school bus plays in the safety, health, security and readiness of America’s schoolchildren. Council members are committed to providing safe, effective, efficient and healthy transportation for the more than 25 million schoolchildren who ride more than 480,000 school buses each day.

The Council's members include NAPT, National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services, National School Transportation Association, Blue Bird Corp. of Fort Valley, Ga., IC Bus Corporation of Lisle, Ill., and Thomas Built Buses of High Point, N.C.
