A Reading Buses driver has won the company’s Star of the Month Award after someone witnessed him stopping traffic to escort a blind customer across the road.
Jim Meredith, 59 from Tilehurst has been a bus driver with Reading Buses for nearly 25 years. He was nominated by another road user who was riding their moped along Kings Road into town when Jim signalled to them to stop in a clear, but polite way, and then safely got the customer to the opposite pavement.
“It is great to see one of our drivers behaving in such a generous and professional manner,” said Caroline Anscombe, HR Director.
“This nomination shows that it isn’t just about making a good impression on our customers, but also on other road users and that even the smallest act can leave a big impression. I am delighted that Jim has received our Star of the Month award for March.”
