The Virginia Association for Pupil Transportation (VAPT) is pleased to announce that the annual VAPT School Bus Road-e-o will take place on Monday June 19, 2017. The location site for the event will be Bird Neck Elementary School in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

 VAPT will sponsor the Conventional and Special Needs Roadeo during the annual state conference in June.


 Please inform your contestants that they will need to register at the road-e-o location site 30 minutes prior to the event starting. Road-e-o competition will start promptly at 8:00 a.m.
