Bus Driver Offer Comfort and Resources to Homeless Passenger Escaping the Cold… You won’t believe when you see who was the driver…

A video that was posted online last month showing a bus driver in Wisconsin offering assistance and comfort to a homeless passenger is warming the hearts of people all over the internet.

On a brisk Saturday evening, bus driver Natalie Barnes of the Milwaukee County Transit System was working behind the wheel when a passenger by the name of Richard boarded the vehicle.

Richard, a passenger on Barnes’s bus who she had previously encountered, traveled with her on the line until they reached the terminal of her route.

After that, Barnes took advantage of her time off to strike up a conversation with Richard.

During their conversation, Richard revealed to her that the house he had been residing in had been deemed unfit for human habitation.

He had been without a home and slept on the streets for a week at that point.

Barnes, moved to compassion by his dilemma, offered for him to ride on her bus so that he would not be forced to wait outside in the chilly weather.

When they arrived at one of her layover locations, she made a proposition to provide him with something to eat.

Richard told the kind-hearted driver, “Now I don’t know what more to say other than thank you,” after he had insisted that he would pay her back, but she denied his offer, stating, “I want to help you.”

Richard insisted that he would pay her back.

During the next break that Barnes had, she reached out to a friend who worked at Community Advocates to inquire about the possibility of receiving assistance in this matter.

Richard was fortunate enough to be placed in a shelter for the time being, and efforts are currently being made to locate more permanent accommodation for him.

Recently, video footage of the heartfelt encounter was uploaded to the website of MCTS, where it was accompanied by praise for Barnes’s generosity.

According to the transit company, this is the third time that Barnes has been recognized for exhibiting exceptional conduct while on the job.

The woman who is a mother of three young children frequently packs peanut butter and jelly sandwiches onboard the bus she drives so that she can hand them out to passengers who appear to be hungry.

Chris Abele, the County Executive, stated that “the generosity, compassion, and respect that Natalie showed for this man who was in need are what MCTS Excellence is all about.”

Employees all around Milwaukee County are putting their attention on enhancing people’s lives and building stronger communities, and we are investing resources throughout the county in an effort to cut down on homelessness.

Natalie served as a model for what everyone of us must do to combat homelessness: keep an eye out for one another, care for one another, and collaborate with one another.

I can’t express how appreciative I am for everything Natalie has done.”

Barnes, on the other hand, maintains a humble attitude regarding the event.

Barnes asserted that “at some point in our lives, we will all require assistance.” “I wanted to be of assistance to Richard in any way that I could,” you can say.
