Durham Responds to Busing Trouble in Ames

One parent said changes won't help.

The Durham School Bus Service said it changed it's policies after making mistakes during the first few weeks of school.
The Durham School Bus Service said it changed it's policies after making mistakes during the first few weeks of school.

Durham School Services said changes were being made to ensure the safety of students after dropping off children at the wrong stops twice last week.

In the first case, a preschool child was let off at the wrong stop and a mother reported that her nine-year-old and two younger children weren't dropped off at another, according to a report in the Ames Tribune.

Bus drivers are now required to keep logs of their students as they are dropped off and must announce each stop, according to the report.

Parent Jamie Boughner told WHO.TV that she doesn't think the new policies will make a difference.

“It makes me nervous to trust them, but we don't have much more options,” she said.
