Atlanta Buss Driver Celebrates 50 Years

Buss 5

Chattanooga, Tennessee—

The city of Atlanta just honored a guy named Coy Dumas Jr., who’s been a bus driver for 50 years.  He started in 1972 and just hit his 50th anniversary.  So they paid tribute by plastering his picture across a city bus.

Over the years, they’ve offered promotions and ways to climb the ladder, but he always says no.  He loves his job and calls people “the most valuable cargo you can imagine.”  He’s driven over two million miles without causing an accident.  (Here’s a photo, and tribute video they made.)
