Bus driver makes the day ev­ery day

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I have a morn­ing bus driver who makes the morn­ing trip to work a plea­sure ev­ery day and who is kind to ev­ery­one.

He al­ways has a cheery “Good morn­ing” for us, a stack of news­pa­pers for the rid­ers and if he’s run­ning low, will stock up with more along the route.

Ev­ery pas­sen­ger gets a re­sound­ing, “Have a great day” as they de­part. The pas­sen­gers de­part­ing will turn around and wave at him as the bus goes by.

There have been morn­ings when all the pas­sen­gers on the bus have had a group dis­cus­sion about ar­ti­cles in the news­pa­pers — all be­cause our bus driver has helped a group of strangers feel com­fort­able to­gether.

I’ve also seen him stop and wait for peo­ple who aren’t quite at the bus stop yet so they don’t have to run to make the bus. He will even look down the street to see if an ab­sen­tee reg­u­lar is on the way.

I don’t think there are too many peo­ple who look for­ward to the morn­ing ride to work, but our No. 10 Wolse­ley driver (leaves Dubuc and DesMeu­rons at 6:56 a.m., Stop 50230) has made it that way for many pas­sen­gers.

I would just like to thank him for mak­ing my work day start off great ev­ery day.
