FYI, his name is spelled Birnie. And he is located on Griffiss. You mouth-breathing troglodytes can at least extend the basic courtesy of spelling these men's names properly. Especially Col. Griffiss' name; after all, he died for your right to exercise your First Amendment Rights.

Obviously you don't realize it is the school that determines how many buses run, not Birnie Bus. Birnie has to get approval from the school to add buses. The school also has final say on the routes and numbers of kids on each route.

I am not saying that Birnie is perfect but don't blame them for things dictated by the school.

It's called a budget & Birnie will add as many buses as Rome Tax Payers pay him!

That's a shame, Rome should do something about Tim Bernie cutting corners and putting our kids at risk. He has plenty of buses there. Its illegal to have students standing on a school bus. There were plenty of monitors who fell and got seriously injured because of standing. Its going to take a student flying out of the front windshield for Bernie boy to wake up. Those front windshields are the "kick out" type too. Imgaine a kid flying out of the windshield and being ran over by a 15 ton vehicle... We need a petition sent to the NYS Board of Education in Albany. Fusco is no help.
;BIRNIE BUS does not make the rules every thing goes by what the rome city shool dis. wants talk to andy over there ,they say how many buses to use and if they an use monitors or not...

Let me correct a few of your " statements ". 1- Birnie bus is contracted by Rome city school/ nysdso 2- buses being over crowded is because of Rome city only contracted so many buses threw birnie bus and the rest to be provided by them.So call and complain to Andy Thompson!!! They also send over the routes for each bus,bus #,pick up/drop off times and determine the number of students to ride each bus. 3- Many if not all the drivers have complained about the crowding on each bus and the safety of each student while required to stand due to over crowding!!! Drivers have refused to drive students home from school when there's overcrowding or until a additional bus was sent to take the load off the bus,but Rome city refuses additional funding for another bus!!!! 4- monitors are not being injured because they are required to stand. There being injured by kids/ clients who are abusive or have disabilities that are uncontrollable. 5- if ur working then u do not collect welfare!!! Any educated person knows that!!
Cut the drivers some slack, there job is to get your children to and from school safely!!! And let me tell u,some of the children are less than cooperative. The drivers put up with a lot of bs from kids!!! You have issues with the shortage of buses,overcrowding and etc call Rome City School co/ Andy Thompson!!!!

Good! If anyone sees a child standing on the bus call your local PD immediately! Remember the bus number too.

First off try spelling Bernie Bus right! It's Birnie Bus!!!! So much for that....
as far as kids standing check the law - it says utilize the bus to it's maximum capacity. That would mean 3 to a seat - no standing - except for the first 10 days of school.
Come on - Really???
