Occupation: Bus Driver for First Glasgow
Andrew is keeping people connected by being a driver, to help deliver the links that people need to move around.
Andrew’s story and why he loves the bus:
“I love the bus, they are fast, dependable and always there when you need them. I have always travelled on the bus since a very young age, I loved the cheeriness of drivers also, made my day at times travelling to and from college. I have always admired travelling on the buses that much that I really wanted to be a driver. It was a dream I have had for years. Six months after I passed my car test I went for it and managed to pass my bus test.
Two years on now and I love the buses even more, I love talking to passengers and making their day like drivers in the past made mine.”
A brilliant bus story…
“I can remember being on a number 62 bus in Glasgow from Whiteinch to Glasgow City Centre, it was quite late on in the evening on a Saturday. A passenger who had a few too many started singing flower of Scotland on the bus, a couple of passengers started with him, a few seconds later the whole bus started to sing. It just shows how much a bus journey can bring people together.”
