Dubai Transportation Officials Work With U.S. Agency to Improve School Bus Safety
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is working with our country’s National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) to improve school bus safety for Dubai’s schoolchildren. These two transportation organizations have created a formal partnership to share information and develop safety measures and are planning a joint school transportation summit next year in Dubai. Here at NLS Limo, we have been following developments in this partnership, as we also transport schoolchildren. Our Bay Area school pupil activity buses transport kids from all over the area on field trips, overnight learning excursions and other educational expeditions. Our buses also transport children on trips to baseball games, amusement parks and other fun destinations because kids learn best when teachers and administrators strike the right balance between work and play!
Alexandra Robinson is the NAPT President and Executive Director for Pupil Transportation of the New York City Department of Education. She and other administrators are excited about the future of this collaborative effort.
"NAPT is privileged to join with the Emirate of Dubai in the interest of helping them and others in their region learn from our experiences operating yellow school buses," she said in a recent statement.
Her counterpart, Mr. Essa Al Dosseri, CEO of the Public Transport Agency at RTA, also stated his enthusiasm for the partnership.
"This agreement is the result of many years of working informally with NAPT. Together, we are taking the next step to bring the best practices in school transportation to individuals, businesses, governments and related school transportation service providers in the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) as well as other countries. The conference we are planning will be a unique learning experience for transportation professionals around the world."
At NLS Limo, the safety of our guests is and always has been our first priority, and that is especially true about our youngest guests riding in our San Francisco school pupil activity buses. We outfit each bus with the latest in safety equipment and allow only our most experienced drivers to take these assignments. If you are a teacher or school administrator who is planning a trip for your schoolchildren soon and you need safe and reliable bus transportation, please contact us today at NLS Limo at 800-339-8936 for information.
