Virtual Transportation Supervisor

OSBA offers a unique support service for our member districts, known as the Virtual Transportation Supervisor (VTS) program.

This program is not a replacement for your transportation supervisor, but resources and specialized training to help your administrative team (supervisor, treasurer, business manager). We offer this program to you for a single annual subscription fee, which results in access to services that would normally cost more if you contracted for them through our consulting offerings.  Included are district cost analysis reports, comparative cost analysis, audits of T reports to help you with your state filing, a library of transportation forms and resources, and training opportunities for new supervisors, treasurers or anyone who is managing transportation. 

If you are interested in enrolling in the VTS program, there is a detailed description of the program as well as a registration form listed on the right side of this webpage.

Master of Transportation Administrator Series

OSBA offers members an opportunity for training in pupil transportation management. Our goal is to support newly appointed as well as veteran administrators. The training program focuses on three core competencies: compliance and safety; operations management; and governance and finance. The entire curriculum is delivered over a three-year period, with a minimum of five classes per school year. You may begin the program in any year.

Districts may participate in several different ways:

1) register for any of the individual classes offered; or

2) purchase the MTA subscription on behalf of a designated individual to participate in the Master of Transportation Administrator program that includes all competencies over a three-year period, as well as required projects that benefit the employer. These are one-year contracts, a total of three years are required to complete the program.

The full description of the program and the registration on-line form are available as links to the upper right hand side of this page.

In-person classes are from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., include lunch, and are scheduled at OSBA's offices:

  • 8050 N High Street
  • Columbus, Ohio 43235

Participation in MTA includes access to online class materials as well as OSBA's advanced pupil transportation library as well as transportation data summaries and cost calculators.
