The secret’s in the smile, says Darren Cobb, Halifax’s Best Bus Driver. A two-time gold medal winner, Cobb is “still lovin’” his job driving Haligonians around the crowded city streets, even after nine years. It’s one reason he tries to go that much further in all his passenger interactions. “The way I look at other people, that could be my mom, my grandmother, my daughters. I try to help them out like they’re part of my family.” Catch Cobb for the next two weeks driving the numbers 80 and 34 and give him a smile.
