Passengers on bus refuse to make space for wheelchair user, only for driver to give them a taste of their own medicine


To drive home his point, the driver then ordered the passengers to “wait for the next bus”, as per Francois’ post. He then continued on his route.

Driver punished
Several media outlets picked up on the news shortly after Francois’ post began to circulate. The bus driver ended up in choppy waters, as he’d violated the rules regarding bus driver practises whilst on duty. Fortunately, he kept his job.

Regie Autonome des Transports Parisiens, who handle public transport in Paris, had caught wind of the story and wanted to track down the driver. In the end, however, they decided not to punish him as they felt he’d done the morally right thing. Great thinking!

Sometimes those more self-centered of us need a reminder concerning how to treat others.

In my opinion, the world needs more people like this bus driver – brave enough to stand up for someone in need.
