Recently in Leeds, a kind-hearted bus driver went above and beyond the call of duty. Going out of his way, he ensured that an upset school girl got to her destination on time.
In Leeds, a schoolgirl was left stranded at a bus stop after missing her school bus, terrified and upset at being late on her first day. She was totally unaware of the kindness about to be offered to her.
A kind-hearted First Bus driver leaped into action, relying only on the good nature of his own passengers not to mind being late themselves.
He promised the girl that she wouldn’t be late to school, walked her to a shop not too far away and proceeded to pay (with his own money) for a taxi to get the school girl to her destination on time.
“Now that is a reason I don’t mind my bus running late for.” Wrote Lynsey Jayes, speaking of the kindness unfolding.
Lynsey Jayes, a passenger on the bus at the time, documented the entire encounter on social media. Since then, heartwarming comments about the incident have poured in.
One person commented, “People tend to only be heard of for doing something wrong, takes something like this to restore your belief in humanity and remind you that their are real decent, kind and genuine people out there,”
Whilst others labeled the driver as a modern hero – someone worthy of a medal.
Jayes, speaking to the Yorkshire evening post, said: “It was just lovely to see, it certainly made everyone on the bus smile,”
She continued, “and he certainly brightened up a very wet and miserable morning.”
A spokesperson went on to tell the BBC, “First West Yorkshire is grateful to Lynsey Jayes for highlighting our driver’s actions and to the many customers and other members of the public for their kind comments.”
