The video of a bus driver who stopped to shelter his passengers with an umbrella at every stop has been circulating online, garnering praise and heart-warming messages from netizens.

The Facebook group All Singapore Stuff on Wednesday (September 16) shared a 20-second video clip of an elderly man waiting at a bus stop, held in place by the rain. However, towards the end of the clip, a blue umbrella appeared to make its way towards the man, sheltering him until he made it safely inside the bus, protected from the rain.

The caption noted that the bus driver of bus service 963 did the same thing for each of his riders. “During heavy rain on Mon(day), the driver of bus service 963 got down from (the) bus, took (his) umbrella, and sheltered passengers at every bus stop. Salute (to) this captain!” the caption read.
