Changes are everywhere in the school bus industry and that is also true here at IPTA. The Board of Directors has established the dues structure in an effort to generate improved programs to help you achieve your goals of providing safe bus rides for students and confidence for their parents who depend on you every school day.

IPTA has a tiered School District Membership according to the size of your school district. This type of membership is typical among many organizations and associations today and permits the opportunity for association efficiency of operations while increasing and improving a wider range of benefits for our district members.

  School Enrollment      Member Price

  • 0-399                    $ 120.00
  • 400-599                $ 180.00

IPTA District Memberships run for 1 year from the date that you join. 

For new members all you will need to do is click on the "Join Now" button and provide your information and the program will automatically send you an invoice by email or you can pay by credit card.
