First Student's First Day
Remember transportation provider First Student, the internationally owned monolith that Detroit Public Schools emergency financial manager Robert Bobb vowed would improve services over reliable long-time local vendors like Safeway Transportation? The same First Student that, despite a controversial bidding process and less-than-sterling reputation, still wound up getting the bulk of the DPS transportation routes?
Yeah well, it seems they're already off to a rousing start.
Some Detroit students and emergency financial manager Robert Bobb got a later start to the new school year than anticipated when their bus arrived about 25 minutes after its scheduled stop.
I suppose that even in a screwed-up system like DPS, where there is indeed plenty to be repaired, the old adage can still apply: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
