Thoughtful driver of bus service 139
On a recent trip aboard bus service 139 (SBS 5206 S), I noticed how thoughtful the bus captain was.
When an elderly man, possibly in his 80s, who was walking very slowly with the help of a walking stick, boarded the bus, the captain did not drive off until this passenger was safely seated. He did the same when another senior citizen, also with a walking stick, got on board.
I do not often see bus captains showing such thoughtfulness. On some occasions, I have nearly fallen over or hit myself against the handrails because the drivers did not wait till passengers were seated before driving off.
