Many Dobie students ride a bus to and from school. Some don’t mind riding the bus but some dislike it. Bella Oakes says that her bus ride is 15 minutes and she gets home at 4:00. She said her bus is very crowded with three or more to a seat. She said she respects the bus and the rules, but some of the the other students don’t. “No, they scream and are so loud,” she said. There are assigned seats on the bus, she said. “Like, is it necessary? There is gonna be tons of kids anyway,” she said, adding that the bus is very chaotic. She said her favorite part of being a bust rider is that it means it is the end of the day and she gets to go home. Her least favorite thing is assigned seats.
Kenzie Jones also had many things to say about her bus. She rides bus 152 and said that it’s so crowded to the point where students have to sit three to a seat. With that said her and fellow students respect the bus. Jones also stated that the bus is usually late to the bus stop in the morning, and that the bus driver only has the air conditioning on in the morning.
