Testimonials

“Last night one of our teachers had several issues with students being at the wrong place at the wrong time. She reported that the bus driver helped her get kids to the correct buses and even took a student home that was not on his route since all the other buses had been dismissed. I cannot tell you how much we appreciated his “top notch” customer service.”
