Making field trips possible since 1946.

We rely on certified bus drivers to get our children to school, and they can rely on us for a school bus loan. At Tangipahoa Parish Teachers’ Credit Union, we provide school bus loans to our qualified members that need it. We support our parish schools as well as the students who need transportation.

If you are a certified bus driver and a TPTCU member, contact us today to find out more about our school bus loan rates.
