Say what you will of “Chapel Hill values”, but it can be quite nice when you’re on the receiving end.
This morning I watched the driver of Bus 734 pull over for a moment to let a young man, already wheezing from running up MLK to the Kron Building stop, jog the next 20 yards to clamber on. Sure, the driver could’ve kept on going – answering to the demands of the clock – like many drivers do in other jurisdictions. But, hey, this is Chapel Hill.
Thank you Bus 734, for your act of kindness.
