TransLink in the media: An act of kindness on transit

The image of kindness – 24 Hours

Hello Buzzer readers,

We often hear about random acts of kindness on our buses and SkyTrain.

Such is the story that took place two days ago on a bus in Surrey. A young man, who prefers to stay anonymous, saw that another rider was barefoot, took off his shoes and socks and gave them to the barefoot man. Asked about how he was going to get around without shoes, he replied: “Don’t worry about me — I live close by and can walk,” and got off the bus. This generous and selfless act was witnessed by an off-duty bus operator who told this story to the media. As he said to CBC News: “It was very inspiring and very soul-touching for me”.

You can read the original story, published by 24 Hours or watch the CBC News clip.

We are deeply touched by this story and proud that such a genuine and generous act happened on our transit system. Have you witnessed an act of kindness on transit? Let us know and leave us your story  in the comments section.
