Transport providers in Mackay

What is it with the transport companies around here?

Last year when I took my year 12 maths class ten-pin bowling, the maxi-taxi didn't show up—well, actually, they did, after we'd already waited almost an hour, given up and made other arrangements. (They have a reputation for being late, apparently.)

Yesterday when I had 25 students at Slade Point for a chess competition, our bus home didn't arrive. Eventually, after a couple of phone calls, they sent us another bus. The replacement bus arrived at 3pm (and we're supposed to be back at school well before 3pm!), and the driver tells me they “had some trouble with the other driver”.
