  1. Bussing in general has been a debacle. all buses all comapneis

    and why was there a delay the other time in defercne to the schedules of other towns?! Crazy

  2. inteeresting
    is this the first frum owned school bus company in the States? I never even knew there was one
    We shoudl have more of them.

  3. Ribono Shel Olam – try using the bus service here in NY or out-of-town where there aren’t always buses. It’s gehinnom. This fellow sounds like he’s trying his best. Give him a break.

  4. I am a principal in a school in Lakewood and I am telling you that there is a real issue of boys suffering because there is a one hour wait in the mornings. There is massive Bittul Torah and simple Tzaar balei chaim!
    I feel so bad for the wonderful Yiddisher drivers.

  5. I cant view the video since my filter doesnt allow me to access you tube. Matzav usually downloads it themselves. I would love to see the video

  6. “Negba” means “to the south.” There’s a song, ufaratztah, which means we will burst forth, Yama (to the sea, or west), v’kedmah (forward, or to the east), tzafonah (to the north), v’negbah (and to the south). By the way, the desert in the south is called Negev. i guess that desert’s name means, “South.”
