The bus captain is a young Chinese man who seemed to be in his 20s. He continued to bid farewell to the alighting passengers at every bus stop. As expected, his friendly gesture was not reciprocated. I read that greetings by bus captain are quite common in some countries. However, this culture is certainly not commonly practiced here. I believe he could have gotten a few strange stares from the passengers. As I alight the bus, I smiled at the rear mirror to acknowledge his greetings.
The bus plate number was SBS8496B. I alighted at Eunos Link (B02) at about 6.40pm. I hope that the young man’s courteous gesture will get recognized by SBS Transit one day.
