Bus Operator of the Month: April 2017

Each month, we have the opportunity of honoring a Rapid Bus Operator who has gone above and beyond in their job to keep the community moving. These bus operators are nominated by their peers and awarded by the Transportation Department for their hard work and dedication.

Bus Operator Maggie H.

BUS OPERATOR OF APRIL 2017: MAGGIE H.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE RAPID?

I started my driving career in 1979/80 with the public schools. However, I just celebrated 10 years this past January with The Rapid. That’s a total of 38 years as a driver!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT YOUR JOB AS A BUS OPERATOR AT THE RAPID?

I like the passengers best–young, old, rich poor–I have love for them all.

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

Music of all types is a great backdrop to my life as I grew up in a musical family. I like to sing and play my saxophone when I have the time. Aside from music, I’m an idealist. I’m passionate about imagining a world where people treat each other right, where love prevails.

Congratulations, Maggie! Thank you for all you do.
