MBTA Bus Operator Found Wallet, October 26, 2014MBTA Bus Operator Richard Cooper, left, made quite a discovery while driving Bus #656 on Thursday, October 23.

A passenger had left behind a wallet, containing $1,735.

Cooper, 28-year T employee, immediately contacted MBTA Bus Dispatch about the discovery.  He delivered the wallet and money to Inspector Dave Malone at Sullivan Station, who turned it over to a supervisor at the Charlestown bus garage.

Next step: connecting the wallet with its rightful owner. A day later, on Friday, Jazmine Tucker, below, of Charlestown called the T to report her wallet missing. After she verified her name and the contents of the wallet, Bus Supervisor Michelle Smallcomb reunited Tucker with her wallet and its contents.  Not surprisingly, Tucker had been taking the T to make a deposit at her bank when she lost the money.

CongratulationMBTA Wallet Owner Jazmine Tucker, October 26, 2014s to Operator Cooper and supervisors for conscientious work on behalf of one very happy T customer.

Please contact MBTA Customer Support if you have questions or issues while riding the T.
