Cook-Illinois Corp.
Oak Forest, Ill.

What is the biggest change you have seen in your area in recent years?

I believe local school districts’ expectations regarding school bus transportation have been elevated dramatically in the last couple of years. School districts expect almost perfect daily service regardless of weather or any other types of distractions. School districts want immediate answers to all inquiries and will not tolerate even the slightest problems.
