British bus drivers

It’s too early to say how it is in whole UK, however in the area where I live bus drivers are easy going people, they can stop the vehicle in any place they want. For example, if you pressed request stop button and driver didn’t notice that, then it’s enough to tell him about this and he will stop the bus to let you out, so you don’t have to wait to go out on the next bus stop. Also when bus valey is busy then next bus will stop near to the bus valey to let you enter.
As I noticed for so long, a lot of them are also nice and have sense of humour, they just seem to have positive attitude.
Is it the same in rest of UK, I have no idea as well as I don’t know how it is in big cities here.
Have a nice day.
