It’s refreshing to witness acts of kindness in a world where people are often preoccupied with their own affairs. This bus driver’s compassion towards a crying girl is a prime example of such a gesture.
Reddit user u/legendary_Russian shared a heartwarming story about a bus driver who went out of his way to help a distressed little girl. The driver was on his usual route when he saw the girl crying on the side of the road. Without hesitation, he stopped the bus and got off to check on her.
The girl had been a victim of bullying that day and was in great distress. However, the kind-hearted bus driver did not hesitate to come to her aid and offer her a comforting presence. Remarkably, the bus was full of passengers at the time, yet the driver chose to prioritize the girl’s emotional well-being over the bus schedule. The passengers on the bus were also supportive and understanding of the situation, recognizing the significance of the driver’s act of kindness.

Another Redditor, u/bdbdbokbuck, shared a heartwarming story of their own about a kind bus driver. “Would love to hear more bus driver stories. My daughter forgot her Christmas decoration on the bus. She had made it in school. The next day the bus driver shows up on our doorstep with it. Wife and daughter were in tears,” they shared.
One Redditor, u/StashtheWonderDog, shared a touching story of how a bus driver helped change their brother’s life. Despite being big for his age, the brother was non-violent and became a target for bullies. The bus driver noticed this and started talking to him, making sure he sat close to the front to avoid further bullying.
The driver’s encouragement sparked an interest in photography in the brother, and after receiving a compliment on a photo he took, he pursued it as a hobby. His father even built him a darkroom. Today, he is a successful professional photographer and just celebrated his 60th birthday.
Small gestures of kindness can have a significant impact on someone’s day. Whether it’s holding the door for someone, offering to help carry their bags, or simply greeting them and asking how they’re doing, we all have the ability to make someone’s day brighter.
