Shoutout to Muni Driver #833

We found a very sincere thank-you note from a blogger on Tumblr who had an amazing Muni driver who made his day by going above and beyond.
“Today I had one of the coolest experiences I have ever had riding Muni. The driver kept everyone informed of all delays. ‘we have one car ahead of us… their doors are closing. We’ll be moving in 5 to 10 seconds” he said, and he was right. At almost every stop he told everyone getting off to “have a great day I’ll see you mañana, be safe” and occasionally added “remember that Muni loves you.’ He was funny too. When it was time to raise the right-side steps he said ‘I’m raising the right side steps, I hope nobody had a big breakfast or we’re in trouble.’
“At the end of the line he told everyone ‘Thank you for riding my pony express I love you, see you manana.’ I got off the train and went to the driver’s door. ‘Hey thanks for being awesome, what’s your number?’ i asked. ‘833, see you tomorrow!’ he said and smiled. I shook his hand.”
Kind of reminds me of another great Muni driver with a musical gift. Read the rest of the story on Design the Revolution. This driver’s incredible positivity puts the rest of us pencil-pushers to shame.
