Parents of Huntsville City School students told WAAY 31 they're pleased with the District's new bus company.

"It's been wonderful so far with the buses being on time within a five-minute span or so. We did have one issue yesterday morning where the bus had to be substituted, so the tracker didn't work but it was substituted by the afternoon so that was fantastic," said Jennifer Crepeau, whose child rides a bus.

She told us her experience with Apple Bus Company is far different than the experiences her friends when Durham School Services ran the buses for Huntsville City Schools.

"We heard from lots of parents and lots of friends that there were late buses, there were early buses where people completely missed the bus, lack of air-conditioning or heating. Things that should be on a bus," she said.

Crepeau’s enthusiasm stretches into the schools.

"What an amazing thing it is to have all buses on time. We're on the third day of school and our buses have been on time every day." said Huntsville High School Principal Aaron King.

The principal of Huntsville High School told us bus riders arriving on time is a welcome change.

"It's a great stress reliever for kids to know when they're going to be at school and when they're going to be at home," King said.
