A long time ago there was a young man named Cristóbal who found work with a priest ferrying people back and forth across a river on his back. One day a young boy came to Cristóbal when he was resting, and asked Cristóbal to ferry him across the river. Cristóbal discovered that the boy was the Christ child. Because of his work helping the people cross the river, Cristóbal became San Cristóbal, the patron saint of bus driver.
