Hats off to Kings Tran­sit

Annapolis Valley Register - - OP-ED -

In Kentville I was for the first storm in De­cem­ber

And with thanks to Kings Tran­sit It is a day I will re­mem­ber.

All the buses were run­ning Al­though some lagged be­hind. I was happy there were no ac­ci­dents

And they were not in a bind.

So I headed to the Sta­tion Lane bus stop

Know­ing I may have to wait. As ac­cord­ing to the In­ter­net My bus to Wolfville was run­ning a few min­utes late.

As I waited with oth­ers

What did sud­denly ap­pear?

But a Kings Tran­sit pick up

With a plow and all the snow gear.

And he hopped out of his truck and asked

“In which di­rec­tion we head?” And we all held our breath

For the an­swer that we may dread.

The bus to Green­wood

Was com­ing our way

So the three other pas­sen­gers Would not have too much de­lay.

To me he said,

“Hop in the pas­sen­ger seat,

I’ll take you to the of­fice to keep you warm in the heat.”

An­other pas­sen­ger was picked up along the way

And his driv­ing was skill­ful

There was no slip­ping or slid­ing that day.

As we waited in the of­fice With the friendli­est staff. We en­joyed some good ban­ter And we all shared a laugh.

Af­ter wait­ing for what seemed like min­utes

There was no rea­son to cuss. We were sent on our way

And placed on the next bus.

Headed to Wolfville

With only a 30 minute de­lay. The staff was amaz­ing

They did save the day!

So hats off to Kings Tran­sit.

It is not hard to tell

Your staff is the best so please treat them well.

Mov­ing pas­sen­gers can be dif­fi­cult

When there is so much snow on the ground.

But the staff on that day

All wore smiles, I found.

So thank you Kings Tran­sit

For the cus­tomer ser­vice that was sec­ond to none.

And thank you again

For get­ting the job done!!
