The Tri-City News ran a story on transit operator Rick Laidlaw, who has been driving buses for 35 years and has never had an accident! Over the years, Coast Mountain Bus Company has estimated that Rick has picked up and dropped off an estimated 2.2 million passengers, and travelled the equivalent of a trip to the moon and back. A huge accomplishment, and a big congratulations to Rick!
