“This bus driver on the number 16 this morning deserves a huge pat on the back… a young girl waiting for the bus at the wrong side of the road and was upset she would be late for her first day at high school … the driver not only phone her a taxi, he walked her to Tesco and he paid for it… now that is a reason I don’t mind my bus running late for,” wrote Jayes on her wall.
