Following a brief discussion of energy contingency planning, this paper points out that such planning "may become the cornerstone of an integrated transportation management system that links urban development and air quality into one comprehensive local transportation response." The various roles involved in incorporating the school transportation industry as part of the energy contingency plans of the U.S. are discussed. These include the role of the bus operator, the community role, local governmental actions, state and federal roles, the role of local business, the role of labor, and the role of local planners. In conclusion some sources of financial assistance are identified and various means of implementing the contingency plan for use of school buses are discussed.
