You asked

What record do you have of the service on the days that I have complained about? Can you please supply me with all the actual timings of the bus arrivals along the route for the past 3 months including any cancellations and any service information that you keep regarding aggregated service times, lateness and cancellations. What KPIs do you expect the operator to meet? How are they doing against those KPIs? What efforts are you and they making to ensure that the bus provides a proper service that my daughter can rely on to get to school without being marked late so often
