Hear Here: Meet Archie Johnson
Driving a bus can be a stressful, thankless job – just ask AC Transit driver Robert Hawkins, who told us in this recent Crosscurrents story: “It's like a switch turns on in your head because you know that you're getting ready to deal with a bunch of mess. Or the potential for a bunch of mess out here.”
But it can also have moments of surprise and kindness. In this audio snapshot from our Hear Here community storytelling team, fellow Oakland bus driver Archie Johnson shares the Zen philosophy he's found while on the road.
