Reliable and dependable are words I would not use to describe the public transportation system

Students try their absolute best to arrive at school on time, but it is sometimes next to impossible. Being late is never something anybody strives for because you wind up looking unreliable and unorganized. However, this is sometimes impossible to avoid when students take the bus.
