    Unfortunately for this guy (not saying he is blameless) he will pay the price (court of public opinion) for all that went before him (poster child for the stupidity of the industry).

      that’s what I am saying Sharon King parents know what this culture gives, it is no secret, if there are multiple transport board buses on a school route why allowed your child/ ward to catch these vans?
      we also as parents too are very negligent, we take life for granted and only hearken when disaster comes home to us.
      I am sorry for the young lady and her family, very sorry

    zoning & school bus system will get this sorted out.

    I agree the ZR’s drive very bad but you all are saying “why cant they catch the TB busses …….. but here’s a fact many of those TB drivers used to be mini van drivers and in some cases ZR drivers …. and a lot of them drive just as bad and in some cases even worse than the current ZR drivers.

      yes the same accident can happen on transport board buses however there is a lot more discipline on public transport even from previous zr drivers now employed at transport board than private
