Giving thanks for amazing transit drivers

Posted on Fri, Oct 17, 2014 at 4:00 AM

This is a big thank you and shout-out to the two Halifax Transit drivers who helped me get my Kobo e-reader back after I accidentally left it on the bus on the Friday before Thanksgiving. My husband raced me out to the bus depot in Burnside once I panicked and realized I left it behind, but lost & found was closed. A female driver heard us talking about it, and offered to help. She sort of knew where I got off the bus, and was pretty sure she knew who the driver was on the bus I left the Kobo on. She went back into the dispatch centre and found out he had it and he was on his way in to end his shift. Long story short, thanks to these two amazing drivers, I got my Kobo back on Friday night without waiting until lost & found re-opened on Tuesday after the long weekend. A huge kudos to two drivers who really made my day. I always tell people the drivers on Halifax Transit are awesome, and this just proves I am right. —Chaining the Kobo to my wrist from now on...
