Frustration is mounting among parents in North Fort Myers, Florida, as their children miss school days due to tardy or absent school bus drivers. The students, who rely on their buses for transportation to and from school, suffer the consequences of unreliable drivers, with one parent reporting that her child has missed six days of school.

The first parent, who does not have access to a car, recalls waiting anxiously for her child’s bus to arrive at 6:40 A.M. only to be left disappointed when the bus never showed up. “You’re standing out here until 7, 8 o’clock waiting on a bus. It’s extremely frustrating,” the frustrated parent exclaimed.

Meanwhile, another grandparent reported that her grandchild had missed six days of school due to no-shows by substitute drivers. Despite their regular driver always arriving on time at 7:02 A.M., the grandparent expressed her disappointment in the lack of responsibility taken by substitute drivers.

The parents and grandparents of these students are calling for immediate action to address the issue of unreliable school bus drivers. They believe that their children’s education should not be put at risk and that students must be able to attend school regularly and on time.
