I was on the 47 a couple years ago, heading to RRC, when I encountered the happiest bus driver I've ever had.
This was a couple years before the bus drivers had to announce their stops, but this guy was all over that microphone.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we are now entering beautiful downtown Winnipeg."
He even did a door prize draw. "I hope you all held on to your transfers," he said as he dug into the bag of expired bus transfers. "And the winner is nuuuumber..... seven!" which was the day printed on all the transfers.
I pretended to be really excited about winning the door prize and he explained it was just a gag.
Never saw that guy again.
