    Manners maketh bus driver: a letter-writer says Mr M.S.C. Simmons should get Bus Driver of the Year award


The following letter was sent to the manager of the Public Transportation Board and copied to The Royal Gazette:

Dear Sir,

It will be remiss of me if I did not write this letter to you. Last Monday, May 1, a friend and myself travelled on the bus to St George’s — No 11 at 3.15pm.

The driver was Mr M.S.C. Simmons, who carried out his duties in an impeccable way. I would like to congratulate him on his manners, the way he talks to his passengers and for his passion in the way he does his job.

As we were going down the hill, before we got by the bridge in Bailey’s Bay, a young boy got off the bus. Without hesitation, Mr Simmons got off the bus and made sure the boy got across the road safe.

This is not the first time I have seen him do this. He is also helpful with seniors and tourists alike.

He should get the award of Bus Driver of the Year award.

My hat goes off to him; in my opinion, he is the “Best”.

Keep up the good work, Mr Simmons.
