Yes Andy Thompson is a liar and a sneek, I can't agree with you more and he works for Rome City School District NOT for Birnie Bus. I do know my facts, thanks!

I have 3 boys that go to three different schools. Two ride the bus one I drive. I drive him only because it is convienent and I get to spend more time with him. My middle son LOVES riding his bus. He has a fit if he can't. His busdriver is awesome and has the kids in assigned seats. There is never a problem on the bus. May be the area we live in but never once in 6 years had a problem. He even left his ipad on the bus one day and a kid turned it in to the driver and he made a special trip to bring it back to us at the end of his route. My oldest rarely rides the bus as he and his friends all drive now. If for whatever reason he has to ride it he has no complaints and I have never had an issue with that bus.
Tim Birnie does NOT drive any buses. He runs a multi-million dollar company. He doesn't have time to run around town picking kids up. Seriously who believes that?? We happen to be good friends with him and his family and know this for a fact!
If your kid is having trouble on the bus why not look at your kid and the neighborhood. Or just get up early enough to drive them there yourself.

Do you people think that these parents wouldn't take their kids to school if it was at all possible. And by the way, do you really think that Mr. Birnie "drives the buses!"
Actually Tim Birnie used to drive bus, don't know if he still does or not. So, yes, it is possible.

Buses are terrible. And the ignorant parents making ignorant comments are most likely have the children who are hitting and bullies. Apples don't fall far from the tree .If parents would act like parents these children would act with respect. Karma hope they all get it back x10.

I def had problems with the bus they let my daughter off and left my son sleeping then my kids get dropped off the bus to day care while I work and instead they got dropped home alone a few times after complaining .. I have seen too many times how these pervert drivers hurt children sexually quite a few times . Something needs to be done about the bus situations . You ppl talking shit saying bring our kid if we are so concerned us parents have jobs to support our kids you morons so sometimes it's impossible not to mention our tax dollars pay for school and school busses so our kids should have the right for more monitors not all kids are perfect but why should parents not be able to work just to make sure our kids are safe it's not right

It was just on news a few weeks ago it was a child in utica on bus sexually assaulted by driver just last year the driver brought a kid to his son to abuse near westmoreland it's sickening Our hard earned money should at least get the busses employees better background checks and drug tests that detect the detox that half the ppl take to get their job there. Not to mention if the busses all had monitors some of the bad could be cut.. I am not sure where it was at but I saw on the news how a young monitor saved all the kids and got them off the bus because the driver was so drunk driving the kids ......

He does drive the buses, before I started driving to high school he was my bus driver. Back in '06-'07ish. Just cause he doesn't drive the bus you use doesn't mean anything. He was so strict as a driver

I called them three times to change our address in the system and they kept transferring me to some guy who never picked up the phone nor returned my call. I left a detailed message. Needless to say, my son missed out on summer school because they would not update the address and pick him up. He needs an administrative overhaul.

I am a parent of a child that I unfortunatly have to put him on the bus each morning. Recently he was getting hit by older kids on the bus, so I called Bernie Bus and demanding I see the video as to what exactly happened and they said i was unable to do that. I am so fed up with Bernie Bus and their drivers. I know so many concerned parents. Does anyone else have complaints, maybe we can all get together to do something about this so we know are kids will always be safe on the bus. We as parents should not have to be worried to send our kids to school on a bus. The owner obviously has no idea what goes on on his buses nor does he care.
Yea, put 40 kids into a small place with minimum supervision and expect for nothing to happen to them... You're lucky more hasn't happened. Take your own kids to school if you don't like it. Does your kid sit on the bus and keep their mouth shut? No, they are getting what they have coming to them.

Some neighborhood buses have minmum incidents, some do not. If the parents weren't drinking and doing drugs all the time they could teach their kids to be decent ppl. That's to much to ask though.The parents have to do the crap while they are pregnant, the kids come out retarded and they put the responsibilty of raising their dysfunctional youth on the school district and bus drivers.

If you are coming to the bus stop in pajamas, more than likely you are one of the unemployed scumbag parents responsible for bringing a scumbag into the world.

A big initiative against bullying in the schools, but on the bus a free for all is allowed. Call Bernie they say not their problem it is a school problem. Call the school they say it is a Bernie problem talk to Bernie. If your child is assaulted, it is assault when a five year old is kicked in the groin by a 10 year old, ask to see the video feed and you are told the recording has been erased only later to find out the video camera was never hooked up. This has been going on for at least 10 years as far as I know. I guess the Rome School District and Bernie is embracing the concept of survival of the fittest. Luckily my offspring are some of the "fittest" and are willing to take a swing at someone if needed. I wouldn't have done well on a Rome bus because I wasn't willing/able to swing.
