Buddy's Bus [309] 

Published May 8, 2013 at 7:15 a.m.

5/3/13: For a decade, bus driver Buddy Longworth has been making thousands of buddies across Vermont, one mile at a time. Whether it's Peppermint Patty Friday, reading poetry over the PA, decorating his bus with kitten calendars, or greeting passengers by name - Buddy is one of a kind, a legend some say. Eva rides the CCTA/GMTA LINK Express from Burlington to Montpelier to see Buddy in action and talk to riders about his unique Buddy-isms.

Way to Go week is May 13-17, help Vermonters fight carbon pollution by walking, bike riding, carpooling or taking the bus to work. Tell Buddy that we sent you!

Music: Al Jolson, "I'm Sitting on Top of the World"
