The Bus Fleet is in poor repair, under staffed Maintenance Services with no funds to do the proper repairs, with only three Mechanics and ones is a Supervisor so two Mechanics for a aging bus fleet. The Ambassador to the City is always broken down. If you make a complaint to The Fresno Area Express there are no results the problem is never resolved, is it training?
ADA laws are in consent violation, Drivers making up there own rules and speeds, talking or Texting while at work. Making stops where they want, taking brakes in front of fire hydrants. So they can run in to a store. Here is an one example I wanted to get on the bus at 6:30am, the bus wasn’t stopping so I yelled for the bus, it stop a few feet up I walked up to get on the bus the Driver started to yell, because I didn’t move forward to signal that I wanted on the Bus, I said ”I am blind” ‘did you hear the bus“?, there are quite a few loud trucks running at that time on Hughes avenue., that is one of many a violation of the ADA law the Fresno Area Express Faces.
