The Oregon Pupil Transportation Association (OPTA) has unveiled an all-new Website designed to be of greater use to its members while simplifying its maintenance for the volunteer-run organization, the association announced this week.
The site can be found at www.optaschoolbus.org.
"We were looking for a site that really emphasized our bottom line of safety, while it captured the character of pupil transportation in Oregon," OPTA President Chris Ellison said. "The new site is lively, professional and informative. We're really excited to put it to use."
The new site will allow OPTA's volunteers to easily add news, events, meeting minutes and other items that routinely require updates. Also available on the site are safety exercise materials, job listings, press releases and coverage of the association in the media.
