“A friend had to take her seriously ill cat to Woodstock (he was put to sleep when she got there, much to her distress) and had no way of getting there. So, she contacted someone about the bus, they stopped for her in a place she could get to easily and went out of their way to take her to the vet’s door. She didn’t know the name of the driver but was obviously very grateful. So, it’s clearly doing a great job and I thought I’d pass that on…"
