I got on the bus, yawning but happy, since it was a rare sunny morning in winter. My driver informed me that my stop was voted “the most beautiful bus stop in Seattle” because you can see the sun rise over Lake Washington. He looked so happy, I know he likes his job.March 13, 2014, Route 14, Westbound toward Seattle from the 31st and Norman St. bus stop.
Mike has been my driver to work most mornings for the last nine months. He is really friendly and helpful. When I had an arthritis flare-up, he kept an eye out for me hobbling to catch the bus and waited so I didn't have to run. Feb. 18, 2014, Route D, Southbound from layover area behind QFC
Thank you all for your very, very hard work. You are the bee's knees. All of you drivers!March 12, 2014, Route 47 to downtown
I'm constantly amazed by the less-than-smart things pedestrians, bicycles and passenger vehicles do around buses. I've seen countless examples of pedestrians darting out in front of the bus in the dark and rain. It's awesome seing John in action, avoiding the obstacle course and keeping us all safe.Feb. 14, 2014, Route 18 Express from downtown Seattle
Our regular Vashon drivers make our long commute a treat. They understand our complicated Vashon commuting connections and go out of their way to make dozens of riders' commutes as seamless and timely as possible.March 11, Route 119, Upper Gold Beach to North-end ferry dock
I live in Greenwood and work at a music venue downtown. I take the#5 bus. I got on the bus around 6:15pm heading to work and the driver was so enthusiastic and sweet about her work. Cut to 11:30pm, bussing home, and it's the same lady with the same smile and positive outlook.March 8, 2014, Route 5, bus #2787, Southbound from Greenwood to downtown and back
I am a nurse at Harborview and was getting off a 12-hour shift. It was pouring rain. The bus was crowded, yet the mood was chipper. I was TOTALLY IMPRESSED with how this driver treated all passengers with RESPECT and CARING and still had COMMAND of the bus!!March 5, 2014, Route 3 or 4, bus #4181, downtown to Capital Hill
