    Sadly — I agree with hazeleyes comments — and for that matter- — some of the drivers need to clean their personal hygeine act up — they sure do not present themselves very professionally at times!!!!

    I have found that if you are not rude to someone, they tend to be accomodating. Then again, some develope a bad attitude when given a bit of authority, too. The problem is managers cannot manage effectively for the employee has political connections. It’s the American way, anymore.

    Vehicles are purchased with separate grants specifically for that purpose.

    I have only used their services maybe once or twice and have a relative who relies on this type of transportation to get to where she needs to go, and Mota is slow, and the dispatcher, mainly one of them has been terribly rude and has purposely not picked her up or her grandson and did not have him to school on time . Many consumers have complained but feared retaliation from the dispatcher. This particular person sounds like a man, but is a woman. Something needs to be done and done quickly. Some other consumers with mental disabilities have been made fun of not realizing what was going on, but all of this was over heard by another person. Certain individuals need to lose their jobs, and give it to the ones that will respect the peoples that are using these services. This all has been reported to the head guy John M and the same woman is still working and still doing the same thing. When does the abuse end?
