Welcome to the home of Sport for the Passenger Transport Industry in the UK!

Who are the N.P.T.S.A and What do they do?
The Association was founded in 1971 by six transport companies from Yorkshire and the West Midlands, to cater for sporting welfare of both employees and employers within the passenger transport industry, including bus, tram and rail systems.

Objectives of the Association
To govern, promote, encourage and co-ordinate sport and recreation in the passenger transport industry throughout the U.K. We believe that a when colleagues engage in these activities outside of work it builds higher workforce morale and helps build better, stronger teams.

Membership is open to all people employed within the vast sphere of the passenger transport industry and may, on contribution levels, be individual, garage ,establishment or corporate (Many of the major groups contribute to allow their staff to participate)  Competitions where applicable allow partners and associate members to compete.

Member Sections
There are currently thirteen active sports sections with a further two, General Knowledge Quiz and Photography. (see under Sports Sections). Each section is autonomous and has its own management committee who are responsible for staging competitions, arranging venues, sponsors, trophies. They take further responsibility for publishing their activities through this website and reporting through a nominated representative to the Sports Council of the Association. They also set their own annual subscription or competition entry fees.

Elected Officers of the Association are the President, Vice President, Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. Elected Life Vice Presidents are entitled to attend all meetings of the Association but have no vote.
The Association is managed in a two tier arrangement, representatives of each individual section are delegated to the Sports Council who meet on a regular basis and report with their recommendations to the Management Board.

The Management Board comprises of The President/Vice President – Chairperson – Vice Chairperson – Secretary – Treasurer + 3 Elected Representatives of the Sports Council
