“Dear driver: Please give this letter to that Chia-chi student. She may ride your bus on Thursday or Friday next week. Please hold on to this letter for me, but don’t peep inside. Thank you.” This is a note that a boy student from National Tainan Second Senior High School gave to Chang Shih-wei, who works as a driver for the Tainan City Bus Company, asking him pass a love letter on to a National Tainan Chia-chi Girls’ Senior High School student whom he admired. Not failing in his mission, Chang delivered the love letter to the girl in question without a hitch, enabling the two to pair up.

Chang, who is 50 years old, has been working for the Tainan City Bus Company for four years. He is very considerate, often going out of his way to look after the elderly and other passengers. This has made him very popular with passengers and students, and this year he has been named as one of Greater Tainan’s outstanding drivers.

Chang is responsible for driving Tainan’s number 11 bus, which goes from Chengsi Borough in Annan District via Tainan Railway Station to Tainan Municipal Dacheng Junior High School. He is a witty talker and very popular with students, who all see him as a friend, with some of them even asking him to pass on their love letters.

「司機,請幫我把信拿給那位家齊的同學,她可能會在下禮拜四或五搭車,幫我保管一下,不要偷看,謝謝。」這是一名就讀南二中的男學生拜託擔任台南府城客運駕駛的張世緯,幫忙傳遞情書給一名心儀的家齊女中學生。張世緯不負使命,順利把情書交到女學生的手上,也促成了這一對有情人。

今年五十歲的張世緯,在府城客運已服務四年,他很有愛心,經常主動關懷長者及乘客,深受公車族及學生的喜愛,今年獲選為大台南優良駕駛。

張世緯負責駕駛台南市十一路公車,行駛安南區城西里經台南火車站到大成國中。他談話風趣,很受學生喜歡,也都把他當成是朋友,有的學生甚至連情書都拜託他代轉。
