Whoever had the bright idea of letting that outfit in here needs to have their heads examined.The busses look like they are 50 models compared to what Massac had and what other schools have.
I hear that manager down there is useless and unqualified for the job. Just fix this mess already Unit One.
Wonder what the board thinks about all of this?

Has anyone contacted a board member about these problems?

Well, I called down there and they heard my complaint and fixed the problem. Even added new routes so my student got out at 3pm something that never happened before

Okay so I work for IL. Central...over half the drivers are the same ones that were at B&S, so it's kinda crazy that you would think that there were better drivers before. I like were I work and I think we do a good job. People will always complain.

The half that didn't go to work there must have been the best drivers!

If you work for Illinois Central you should be ashamed of yourself. The school boardin office at the time wanted that bunch in here. Go School Board. Way to make a good decision!!! Not! If it wasn't broke you shouldn't have "fixed"it. And yes, the good drivers left with B&S.
I recommend you take your kids to school yourself.

I don't care if you are "new" drivers or "old" drivers I make sure I am NOT on the road at bus time. Too dangerous to share the road with the current bus drivers.

I don't think the old bus company was a million dollars better. Not even $5,000 better. I guess if I had lost a big contract I would have half the county complaining about the company I lost too. I think the school board owes it to us to take the lowest bidder!?! B&S should crunch some numbers and try again to treat Massac fair.

BTW, I don't think this has one thing to do about the bus drivers and how they should feel. It is not up to the drivers to loose their pennies just because B&S wanted more!

Kicker is that central determined they couldn't do it for the price they bid. Had to up the price.

These drivers have more parents taking their kids to school. There is bound to be a serious wreck. Hire good drivers and pay them.
