Last night (Thursday) I was on the circulator towards McPherson from Mt. Pleasant just after 8 PM. The driver was actively engaging a vision impaired rider to see where she was going. He offered her detailed instructions to assist her. He kindly helped her off the bus at her stop in Columbia Heights and pointed her in the right direction.
Then, as we were driving away, it became clear she was disoriented. He pulled the bus over in traffic, got out and ran about half a block to turn her around and show her to her correct bus stop and she was obviously very grateful.
He then got back on the bus and resumed his route. In the obsession of smart phones, I’m not sure who else noticed.
It was circulator bus number 1147 and the driver’s name was Kieran Prospere.
Hopefully you can share his kindness.”
