NEWBURY PARK (CBS) — Years from now they may laugh about it, but some local high school seniors are not amused about the rusted-out ride that took them to their prom.
Fifty five kids each paid $80 Orange County-based Platinum Express Limo for a VIP ride, but what they got was a dumpy, dirty, rusted-out bus.
KCAL9’s Suzie Suh spoke to the disillusioned students.
They told her the bus smelled, didn’t have any of the advertised specials, like a flat-screen TV in the back and light-up poles, and was a dirty mess.
A manager for the company apologized and said the bus they ordered had unfortunately broken down on the way and another company sent the replacement
They said they are offering the students partial refunds and a free ride in the future.
