Decent bus routes for all schoolchildren now!


Parents to Improve School Transportation (PIST) is campaigning to achieve school bus routes that are:

  • SHORTER
  • SAFER
  • SENSIBLE
  • STABLE

We are against cutbacks in transportation that interfere with equal access to education for students with and without disabilities in all parts of New York City.
