Jarrod Spedding and Charlene Liversidge, from Burnley, first met on the Witch Way X43 bus route but despite taking a shine to each other, nothing happened for years – even though Jarrod used to write his phone number on her bus ticket.
After five or six years the pair finally went on a night out and now three years on they are engaged and planning their dream wedding abroad.
Jarrod (43), who has worked for Transdev for 11 years, said: “I used to get butterflies when I saw Charlene at the bus stop. She got the Witch Way a few times a week.

“I used to write my phone number on her bus pass. Eventually, five or six years on we met up on a night out and hit it off. The rest is history.
“She’s very bubbly, she’s got an outgoing personality. She’s lovely. I know I’m lucky. We haven’t set a date yet but we would love to get married abroad.”
Charlene (33), who works as a carer, added: “I didn’t know his name but whenever I saw him I would tell the girls at work. Now we’re engaged and planning our wedding, it’s just surreal.”
To mark the way they met, the couple had a cake at their engagement party shaped like a bus.
Charlene said: “It was my idea to have something that represented how we met, it’s part of our story. It was a real talking point.”
Richard Jackson, development director at Transdev added: “Everybody at Transdev is very happy for Jarrod and Charlene and we wish them a wonderful future together.”
