I was locked out from bedroom and didnt know what to do , Basically thought about it decided to call the Locksmith office and they got to me right away. I was so glad I was able to go to bed and it didnt take long. They came quick and didnt charge me much for the job they did, the tech was very nice!

I also live in School District 92 and I'm not really sure where this other person is coming from. Transportation in my world is much better than with the High School. My student no longer sits at school 20 minutes before school or a half hour after waitring on a bus to take them home.
Yes we've had sub drivers but have you ever taken a day off of work? Someone has to do your job and someone has to do there's, I'm sure they are all safe drivers and everything is correct, no company would have unfit drivers on the road for them if they knew something was wrong. Let's be honest here would United or Southewest airlines put someone in the captains seat if they knew something was wrong. This is the same way! Things are going to be late once in a while, do you ever go to the doctors office have you ever flown in a plane, have you ever gotten stuck at a railroad crossing? I have and sometimes things run behind.
As for a school bus company they are one of the best in my eyes, I feel safe putting my children on one of there buses and have rode one of them myself on a charter to a baseball game, the driver was awesome and we had a wonderful ride.

Our school district, Will County District 92 in Lockport, contracted with Positive Connections about two years ago. Ever since our bus service has been really bad. Our regular drivers are generally nice. We had one driver who was great, but for personal reasons she was out for weeks at a time. The substitute drivers are incompetent and probably shouldn't be on the road. They are routinely late (really late), or sometimes early (so early I didn't get my kids to the stop on time). They can't follow a simple route. Sometimes they come down the wrong side of the street, so that kids have to cross a busy street in order to get to the side where the bus door is.

Today was the first day of school. My third grader and her friends stood on that stop for OVER HALF AN HOUR, and the BUS NEVER CAME! Of course, other parents and I were there, so the kids weren't in danger. I called the school but they were unable to tell me where the bus was or when it would get there. Finally, right about the time school was supposed to start, a supervisor for Positive Connections came by driving one of those short buses and asked what was going on. When we told her she offered to drive the kids to school. Her name was Colleen and she was great to help out. Later I called the school and the kids were safely in class. Colleen should probably be working for a better company because Positive Connections doesn't deserve her.

There's no excuse for this. No "working out the kinks", or "first day snafus". This is a consistent pattern of incompetence. I've asked my school district superintendent to do something about this. He insists he can't do anything, that this is a private company and our district has a contract. That's a whole other story and the subject of another review. But "Positive Connections" should not be allowed to transport children. Like a previous reviewer said, they should be called "Negative Connections". This bus company sucks! Don't use them!
