The bus driver runs red lights, uses inappropriate language (cussing), bullies students by calling them names, he doesn't follow his route that he is supposed to, he sometimes circles blocks so that he can avoid dropping the students off earlier. There have been many complaints to the Wilhoit bus compound and all the supervisors and nothing happened. Then the complaints have been made to Kammerer Middle School Transportation Supervisor and he said to call the board of transportation. The board of transportation has been notified of all the complaints and still nothing has been done. The JCPS Ombudsman has been informed but she said that this issue needs to be handled through the transportation department. The complaints that are being made are addressed to the driver by the supervisor at the bus compound and he denies all the allegations everytime and the supervisor told me that he is telling the truth and not lying. I have requested that someone follow him from the compound and the supervisor said she would but the next time I called her she said "well I don't need to follow him because he does his job". I was told by the Transportation Department "well there is only a few weeks left of school so this why worry about it". Oh so that is okay if he runs red lights and gets in a wreck. I was speechless that this was the answer I got coming the board of transportation. I do have the names of every person that I have spoke with but I have chosen not to give those out, yet! I have complained on this bus since the first day of school but almost nine months later nothing has changed and things only get worse everyday. I want this bus driver taken off this route.
