Cris Daniels

He truly ensures that if he does not have the ability to answer a question, he WILL go above and beyond to provide an answer. Cris manages new employee orientation (NEO) monthly, often with 10 to 20 individuals in each class. The ability to keep everyone organized and comfortable, while remembering everyone’s name is remarkable!

Lorelei Bather Assists Lost Child - May 2022

A little girl came to my bus at Water Street (in Dover) and asked if she can go to Hartly. I told her we don't have a bus that goes to Hartly. The girl said she had to walk. I was really worried about this little girl walking 8 to 10 miles. When we got to Dover High School, I just couldn't leave her there. I called Dover Police and asked if they could please take her home. They said they would. I called Dispatch to let them know what was going on. Then I waited with the girl until the police got there. There was only one other passenger on the bus. I explained the situation and he was fine with waiting.
