Albany-- Dougherty County school bus drivers say they're tired of waiting for administrators deal with their concerns. Problems came to a head in late September when about a dozen drivers walked off the job one day.

Monday night, the president of the bus drivers union again complained about pay, lack of medical training, and safety issues with the buses. "When they work on them, they just do something to get by. They don't really fix them like they are supposed to be fixed, and that's a hazard to the kids on the bus. We are hauling the more precious cargo they said, but they need to fix the buses," Mary Richardson said.

The Transportation Committee met with drivers back in early December and was supposed to issue a report about the problems to the full board. That hasn't happened yet. After tonight's complaints, the board agreed to deal with that report at next month's meeting.
