The Wheels On The Bus Go Round And Astound
7:01am 8th November 2013
A Cornish bus driver is in the running to be named the best in the UK.
Gino Contrino has run the Camborne route for 26 years.
The First driver will find out if he has beaten six other drivers from across the country, at a glittering bash in London in a couple of weeks.
Gino told Pirate FM the secret: "I just say 'good morning'. A lot of them are local people - a lot of them are not passengers they're friends.
"I've just been through the town now and you would have thought Baghdad was being liberated. All the horns were going off and people were leaning out the windows saying, 'good on you - do it for Cornwall.' It's just great."
"When I started driving I was a bag of nerves and I remember my father-in-law, a great man, said to me 'Stay calm, always say please, thank you and just be honest and decent with people.' I've done that and it's been alright for me."7:01am 8th November 2013
