The County Council has declared this week bus driver appreciation week, partly in response to the assault on a driver last month. This is not to be confused with the international bus driver appreciation day on March 18th.
I guess train drivers, being hermetically sealed from riders, are left out of the love. They certainly have to put up with less from the passengers. I ride enough of the sketchy routes (7, 124) to know that it’s a job I don’t think I could do. Thanks guys!
