CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – An image of a CARTA bus driver is making its rounds across social media.

On the Ride CARTA facebook page, the team reposted an image from Jessica of a bus driver’s act of kindness.

According to the post, a blind man was on the sidewalk but didn’t make it to the bus stop. The CARTA driver pulled over, got out of the bus, and helped the man walk across the ditch to the bus.

The driver was later identified as Cindy Mitchell. “Cindy is a great driver and an even better person,” said CARTA Board Chairman Mike Seekings. “Her empathy for others sets a tremendous example for everyone here in the Lowcountry, and we’re extremely proud of her.” Officials say Mitchell spearheaded efforts by CARTA’s partner TranDev to raise more than $15,000 for the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund last summer.

Jessica added in her Instagram post, she’s “glad to see caring people on this gloomy Friday morning.”
