Bus Operator of the Month: May 2017

Bob O. of The Rapid

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.

Our Bus Operator of May 2017 is Bob O! Here’s what he had to share with us:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE RAPID?

I have been with The Rapid for 8.5 years.

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

I enjoy driving and interaction with the public. I take great pride in wearing The Rapid uniform.

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

I enjoy spending time with my wife and family. Also, in my space time, I go to the YMCA regularly with my wife or my brother. I enjoy reading, music, working in my yard and my five pets.

Congratulations, Bob! Thank you for all you do.
