Being a bus driver is the 'best job in the world'
2:00pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
STEPPING up to the wheel, seven-year-old Bobby Cameron couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he made himself comfortable in the driver’s seat.
The Gorse Covert Primary School pupil dreams of one day becoming a bus driver which he labels as ‘the best job in the world’.
“When I grow up I want to drive buses all the time but only double-decker buses. I wouldn’t mind driving Eddie Stobart vans either,” said Bobby.
But his dream arrived a lot sooner than expected when the seven-year-old and his younger brother, Charlie, aged four, visited Network Warrington depot on Wednesday and experienced ‘the best day ever’.
Bobby was in his element when he spent the day quizzing the bus drivers, learning about the different buses used in Warrington and testing how comfortable the driver’s seat was.
“There are 109 buses in this depot. One day I want to drive all of them,” said Bobby as he inspected the fleet of buses.
The seven-year-old, who spends hours watching buses from his living room window, knows everything there is to know about buses and can cite every bus route which travels passed his house.
Bobby said: “I absolutely love buses. They are really big and I like to watch for the number 25, 17, 26 and 24 from my house.”
Bobby’s step-father, Steve Lippett, said: “We only told him last night that he was coming to the bus depot as we knew he would be too excited to sleep if he knew too far in advance that he was coming.
“He just loves them - he gets upset when we tell him we’re driving somewhere.”
With his sights firmly set on becoming a bus driver, Bobby is now counting down the days until he can take his driving test and get his dream job.
