Boston bus driver treats passengers at lemonade stand
Jul 20, 2015
BOSTON (AP) -- A Boston bus driver made a new group of friends by surprising passengers with a treat to help brave the sweltering heat: He made a stop at a child's lemonade stand.
Boston.com reports 49-year-old John Lohan first asked riders if they would mind. With no one in a hurry, the passengers agreed and Lohan treated each to one 50-cent cup of lemonade from the West Roxbury stand on Thursday.
The Jamaica Plain resident says he noticed the lemonade stand a little over an hour before and decided he would ask passengers about stopping on his next trip.
Lohan says the timing was right, because there were only a half-dozen passengers and he was near the end of his route. He says it's likely the last time he does it.

Yes this is a very heartwarming story, hopefully he didn't receive a warning or a penalty from his boss for the unnecessary stop. And it's good to hear he was very generous with the tip. By the way the bus he's driving is pretty cool. I've never been in the US, so it's interesting to see he's wearing a seat belt when he's driving. Is this common in the North American cities???
