Video captured by 6ABC shows a Philadelphia school bus repeatedly running stop signs.

The television station says it captured video of Bus 86 rolling through signs with children on board five times in two weeks, starting in late May.

One parent, Oskar Castro, told 6ABC that he's complained to the bus company, All City Transportation, multiple times.

"I have watched this go on for pretty much the entire academic year," Castro said.

The video shows the bus running a stop at 71st Street and Grays Avenue on several occasions.

All City Transportation says the driver was disciplined but still works for the company. A supervisor told the television station: "He has a license to drive. It is not my job to take him off. He has a license, and he is not suspended by the law, I can't tell him he cannot drive."

A Philadelphia School District spokesman said the district has asked the company to pull the driver from his routes.
