How Often Do You Show Gratitude For Your Driver?

Every day, bus drivers move our community. They ensure we get to work, appointments, the grocery store, and so much more. For hours on end they manage a schedule, check fares, give directions, all while maneuvering us safely through weather and traffic conditions. Being a transit driver isn’t an easy job, your driver just makes it look that way.

Transit Driver Appreciation DayOn Tuesday, March 18th, please join us in celebrating the contributions of our hardworking bus drivers for Transit Driver Appreciation Day. The way you show your gratitude is truly up to you. Whether you ┬ásmile and wave when you get on the bus or shout “thank you” as you leave, you’re sure to make your driver’s day. If you’re looking to go above and beyond, you can even print out and personalize a thank-you card for your favorite driver. You can even do your part to spread the word about Transit Driver Appreciation Day by sharing this post on your favorite social media platforms.

While this isn’t an official holiday yet, we’re happy to participate with a number of other transportation authorities across the nation to ensure it’s established as such. We think it’s a great way to honor the women and men who do their part to keep us moving every day.

Have you thanked your bus driver lately?
