I’ve had the pleasure on multiple occasions now of riding on the No. 26 Bus service from Waterloo to Fetter Lane driven by an AMAZING driver called Patrick.
Patrick has the ability to put smiles on the faces of a generally miserable bunch of London commuters with his endless amounts of enthusiasm.
I always hope that when I get the bus every morning that Patrick is going to be driving because he always manages to put me in a
great mood for the day.
I wish every TFL Bus Driver was as caring and energetic as Patrick.

Your bus driver is a real credit to you……when he started his shift at 8:00am he made an announcement welcoming everyone onboard and wishing them a lovely
day. Every person that got on the bus was warmly welcomed by him and as they got off he wished them a good day. He made
people visibly smile and people were waving to him after they got seen a bus driver. In 50 years of travelling on London buses have never seen a bus driver this wonderful…..he really made people happy amazing, please pass on my gratitude to him
Ah…was just goggling and wonder if it is Pat Lawson….saw article in the independent…sounds like him

I just wanted to write complimentary feedback about Patrick as he is a fantastic credit to the bus / TfL / network. I don’t see him every day, but the days that I do seem him he is always in the best of spirits. He greets each an every person with a smile and his enthusiasm is infectious for all passengers he clearly is engaged and love with his job and has a genuine interest in people. You must keep this guy as he is an asset to you. Thanks Patrick for your approach each and every day.

Patrick was the most engaging bus driver I have come across in London. Many bus driver don’t engage with customers much, for which I have no problem with. However it was refreshing to have a driver that lifted the mood of all travelling on this bus. Other passengers shared their gratitude towards the driver when they left the bus. One passenger said “thank you for lifting our spirits on a Sunday morning”. Patrick was interfacing with customer in positive and friendly manner, And he made announcements at every stop which would have been very helpful to all those travelling, no doubt indeed to anyone not familiar with London. I would like to thank Patrick and TFL for hiring such great hard working staff.

Patrick was an absolute delight. He said good morning to every single person and made announcements throughout the journey wishing everyone a happy Friday. He told each and every single person who departed to have a nice day. An absolute joy of a journey, give that man a bonus!
