What would you do if you saw a disabled person getting on the bus? The first instinct should be to make some room for that person. Unfortunately, in the real world, things aren’t so hu-nky dory. People can be heartless enough not to budge. This is what happened inside a bus in Paris. But the day was saved by the driver who wasn’t ready to sit quietly. The driver is now being hailed as a hero after he reportedly kicked all his passengers off the bus when they refused to make room for a wheelchair-bound man.
Francois Le Berre, who has multiple sclerosis, attempted to get on a bus in a Paris suburb, but the passengers already on board refused to move up and give him space.
Hier en attendant le bus à Paris, personne ne voulait se pousser. Comme personne ne bougeait le chauffeur s'est levé et à dit "Terminus ! Tout le monde descend! Après il est venu me voir et m’a dit "vous pouvez monter et les autres , vous attendez celui d'après!

The driver reportedly stepped up and ordered all of the other passengers to get off the vehicle, before helping the man on and driving off with just him; like a sort of personal chauffeur service.
After translation the post read: “Yesterday while waiting for the bus in Paris, nobody wanted to move. As no one was moving the driver stood up and said ‘Terminating! Everybody off!’ After he came to see me and said, ‘you can go up and the others, you wait for the next one’
The world needs more people like this bus driver.
