Tim, the bus driver, who for many years was the number one the Stagecoach buses at Hastings is now the number one at Renown Buses. I saw him in Cranbrook and he would like to say all the very best to his friends that he made on the 349 route. Congratulations to one of Stagecoaches best drivers in the Hastings depot. He was rated fifth in the entire nation. Stagecoach will give him a new bus.
