8 Media Advisory: 16 th National Congress on School Transportation (NCST) “Celebrating 75 Years” NCST to Relocate in 2015 In October of 2014, the Missouri Safety Center informed the National Congress on School Transportation (NCST) Steering Committee that they would not be able to meet the objectives of NCST for hosting the 16 th Congress on School Transportation, but offered to assist with a transition for the 16 th NCST. Since 1980, NCST has had a partnership association with the Missouri Safety Center and the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. During this period of time generous support has been supplied to NCST. The steering committee expresses appreciation for the long-term support of the Warrensburg site, and at the same time recognizes that significant changes have taken place in what government entities are able to provide to outside projects.

10 Ten Year Fatality Averages 490 occupants of passenger vehicles 16 motorcycle occupants 20 in “other” vehicles 75 pedestrians 21 bicyclists Just 4 school bus passengers ASBC at NASDPTS201410

11 2013 Back-to-School Bus Tour An effective case study about how ASBC works together to effectively advance the industry’s agenda. NSTA invited NASDPTS to attend their Spring Bus-in in Washington, DC. NASDPTS met with the Department of Education while in Washington and participation on the Bus Tour was broached. ASBC tracked down the lead and secured school bus industry participation on the Tour. Dept. of Ed wanted buses in Tucson / NAPT has strong relationships in Tucson and made that connection. Without the strength of the manufacturers behind ASBC, our group probably would not have had the prestige to become part of the Tour. ASBC at NASDPTS201411

16 2007 NPRM FMCSA proposed a new rule that would: Apply to new interstate CDL applicants before taking the skills test at the SDLA Mandatory curriculum with minimum classroom (120 or 90 hours, depending on class of license) and BTW (44 or 32 hrs.) Schools to be accredited by agency recognized by the Council on Higher Educ. Accreditation (CHEA) or the Department of Education Beginning 3 years after the effective date of the rule, the SDLA would only issue a CDL if the applicant presented a valid Driver Training Certificate obtained from an accredited institution or program. 16

17 FMCSA Actions Since MAP-21 Public Listening Sessions: American Bus Association Marketplace (January 7, 2013); Mid-America Trucking Show (March 22, 2013). Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC) – June 2013 letter report. In September 9, 2013, FMCSA published a notice withdrawing the 2007 NPRM citing: Substantive issues raised by commenters to the docket; Listening session participants’ remarks; MCSAC letter report; and, MAP-21 requirements beyond the scope of the 2007 NPRM. 17

18 Why is FMCSA Considering a Negotiated Rulemaking? MAP-21 mandated numerous changes from the 2007 NPRM (e.g., the inclusion of intrastate drivers, and requirements for CDL applicants seeking the HM and passenger endorsements, etc.); therefore, the Agency could not move forward with a robust final rule. A reg-neg would provide an opportunity for committee members to help the Agency gather information and data to quantify the costs and benefits. Stakeholders could help draft basic framework for a rule that is practical, enforceable, cost effective and enhances highway safety. 18

UK & Ireland’s School transport “European model” Mix of public transport/transit and dedicated school buses Very large reliance on small contractors Generally procured on route by route basis Based on distance, special needs and aged 5-17/18 years Similar regulatory framework – EU re standards – good quality/safety Similar costs approx £/€1,000 per mainstream pupil Similar pressures re education Growing school population, raising standards, improving attainment/closing gap, vocational education, reducing NEETS, ethnic/ethos/language diversity & immigration/integration, SEN, parent preference/choice etc
