I am a high school student who has recently started using public transit.
After a particularly hectic day topped off by waiting 45 minutes in terrible weather, I finally boarded a bus to go home.
I dashed out of the bus, in a rush, and then realized I’d forgotten my bag. I watched in horror as the bus disappeared down the road, and I realized all my Christmas and birthday money, along with my house keys, several gift cards and some soccer cleats were on their way down Pembina Highway.
After a weekend of worry and a few too many phone calls to very patient 311 employees, I was assured that if it turned up, I would be notified Monday morning.
Come Monday, I was overjoyed when I received a call informing me my bag had been turned in.
I would like to sincerely thank the kind soul who took the time to return the bag to the transit lost and found. Thank you.
