The annual Spring Festival transport is starting again. As always, volunteers come to help the passengers at railway stations, airports and other transportation hubs.
"I just do what I can to help people return home safely. I'm also very happy," said Ma Keli, a bus driver and volunteer. This is the 9th Spring Festival transport that he participated. When he is not on duty, he would come to the railway station as a volunteer to patiently remind and help the passengers.
"There are two squares in Ningbo railway station. If passengers come out of the railway station, they often can't tell where to take bus and which bus to take. Then, they will come to ask for directions," said Ma Keli.
He often meets passengers who can not find the direction. At this time, he will help carry the luggage and guide the passengers to the right bus stop to take the bus.
Over the past nine years' Spring Festival transport, he has provided more than 400 hours of volunteer service. He said that he could hear a lot of "thank you" every day, which is the best reward for him and his fellow volunteers.
At the railway station, volunteers from the Ningbo First Hospital were giving a mini anti-pandemic class.
Due to COVID, when using public transport facilities, passengers are required to wear masks, which has become part of the common sense though, not every one is doing it the right way. For example, some of the passengers wore reversed masks or the edge of mask did not fit the face nicely... The volunteers helped correct one by one.
Qian Guoqing, a volunteer from the Ningbo First Hospital, said that he hope his efforts could help more people master anti-COVID knowledge and skills to enjoy a healthy and happy Spring Festival.
The services they provide may be different, the same thing is that they warm the heart of the passengers and let them feel the care of Ningbo. The volunteer services, which come every year as promised, have also become a "beautiful scenery" during the Spring Festival transport.
