California Association of School Transportation Officials

School Transportation Business Management Forum

The California Association of School Transportation Officials offers a yearly event geared toward pupil transportation staff in a leadership capacity such as Driver Instructors, Dispatchers, Supervisors, Lead Mechanics, Directors and Chief Business Officials.  Attendees will learn about ever-changing laws, rules, and regulations governing school pupil transportation during workshops. They will discover the latest and greatest products at the vendor reception where industry related products and services are showcased. The Managers Forum offers an excellent opportunity for networking with colleagues, vendors, and state officials.

Message from the Executive Board: September 2021
Due to continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID pandemic, all in-person CASTO events for the 2021-2022 fiscal year have been canceled. This was discussed and endorsed at the California Association of School Transportation Officials Executive Board and Board of Directors meeting on Friday, September 10, 2021.

All districts are experiencing a shortage of School Bus Drivers and we must maintain safety as our top priority. It would be irresponsible to continue hosting in-person meetings and events during these unprecedented times. If possible, all chapter presidents are encouraged to provide future events in a virtual setting. Please continue to check for events in and around your chapter on

The CASTO Treasurer will be issuing refunds to all attendees and vendors who have already registered and paid for the School Transportation Business Management Forum. 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Yours in safe transportation,

CASTO Executive Board
