It is the Montauk Bus Company; They do transport in the Mastic Beach area. Montauk Bus needs to teach their drivers better SAFETY. Their drivers are terrible. I have called in several complaints myself about the way their drivers perform. I guess they don't care. We should all call about the usafe acts of their bus drivers and maybe they will do something about them.

I drive in the area and have seen Montauk busses driving unsafely, I am glad my children don't ride in one of those busses!Doesn't the company care about the children, and test their drivers?

that bus company offers nothing to their drivers so the drivers dont respect the job, and its all about the money the company can make for themselves, thats why they cant attract any good bus drivers,who will have childrens safty in mind its a poorly run place, i applied there and when i saw what they offer and hear about them on post like this,i would rather work in mc donalds, at least there is some sense of teamwork there
