Quebec boy with autism stuck on lost school bus - Montreal - CBC News

Quebec boy with autism stuck on lost school bus - Montreal - CBC News

The mother of a seven-year-old boy with autism is upset after her son was stuck on a lost school bus for nearly two hours.

Nancy Loane's son Darcy has Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. She said he is high-functioning, but has an anxiety disorder.

After the first day of classes at his school in Westmount, Darcy's bus driver took the wrong route and got lost. Loane was at home waiting for him to arrive, and worrying because it was getting late.

She called the bus company, Transco, to find out what was going on, but said she was disappointed with their reaction.

"The bus company insisted Darcy wasn't on the bus but I knew he was on the bus," she said.

Eventually the dispatcher explained the driver had not followed the normal route, had not noticed Darcy was on board, and was now lost.
