Tommy Transit bus driver extraordinaire!

Postby DoYourDream » Sun Mar 27, 2011 6:22 pm

My friend Tommy Transit (a bus driver) appreciates people, makes their day by giving them honest compliments, pleasant greetings and good chuckles.
He's been doing this for years and drives the Broadway line in Vancouver, British Columbia (2010 Winter Olympics) - He is genuinely happy and shows it.
For his 60th birthday his riders decided to do something for him. So at each stop a group of them had balloons and hugs, etc. They were paying him back for all the good he does.
Check out: http://www.tommytransit.com - He wears crazy hats, does crazy voices and makes your ride a memorable one!
Would we all love someone like this to "make our day" on our way to work, appointments, etc.
Imagine having someone say good morning Joyanna, my your wearing a stunning outfit today, or gee what a great hat, or look at those boots!
Wouldn't you feel good. Kudos to Tommy and look at the TV clip on his site, it's really fun.

Boy the day you see that with the bus drivers in Chicago (With their blank expressions and grunts as the answers to your questions), will be the day hell freezes over. :)

Tommy's book is on Amazon "Tommy Transit's Bus Tales: How to Change the World from 9 to 5" and he is enjoying hot climates for several months now traveling in Asia. He lives in a "converted bus" that's really cool on Galiano Island. The nicest man with a huge heart and a wonderful smile.
