Bryan Jeresano

An ATU hero at Local 1587-Toronto, ON

Go Transit bus driver Bryan Jeresano is being hailed as a hero for helping a young woman being stalked at a bus stop. The 18-year-old University of Guelph student was waiting alone for her regular bus home after work one night when a car with two men slowed down. The car stopped, and one of the men got out, walking quickly at her. At that moment the Local 1587-Toronto, ON member happened to be driving his bus nearby. Jeresano recognized the young woman as he had seen her at the city bus stop during the prior few months. Recognizing the fear in her eyes, he stopped his bus immediately, and she hopped on.  “She thanked me over and over again. This is when it hit me that she was genuinely terrified. And I was so happy to have been there to help her,” Jeresano said. “As a bus driver, I am used to seeing beyond the ordinary, to really pay attention to details, for anything extraordinary.” Read more.
