Comox Valley bus drivers go extra mile for commuter

Dear editor,

I would like to say thanks to the transit drivers that went the extra mile to get me to work Thursday morning.

I was distracted by my phone as I boarded the Comox Express bus, and by the time I was travelling down Lerwick I had realized I was on the wrong bus.

I started to worry that I’d be late for work and all of a sudden the driver pulled over got on her radio and asked the #4 Lerwick driver heading in the opposite direction to pull over. I got off the #34, ran across the road and boarded the #4.

That driver then called ahead to the #12 North Island Connector as we came down Ryan road and asked her to wait on the Old Island Highway. I jumped off the #4 by the Chevron, ran through the back of 7-11 and jumped on to the #12 heading in the right direction.

I got to work on time. So thanks to the drivers for going the extra mile.
