He immediately told his supervisor and the bag was eventually reunited with its careless owner.
And the bus driver was praised by the RTA‘s Director-General Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer.
“We pride ourselves on having employees with such great disciplines and fidelity at the RTA. This bus driver took the proper action by handing over the bag to the Buses Supervisor. This attitude fully reflects the confidence in the loyalty and honesty of the employees of our public transit means that commute hundreds of thousands of riders every day. This behaviour boosts the public confidence when using public transport means in Dubai,” said Al Tayer.
