Transit Driver Appreciation Day
March 17, 2023
Transit drivers work incredibly hard to keep the region moving. They safely maneuver extra-large vehicles through unpredictable traffic, adverse weather conditions and some really tight spaces, in addition to giving directions, announcing stops, remembering stop requests and more.
On March 17, Transit Driver Appreciation Day, we encourage you to say thank-you, wave or give your operator a smile. They’ll love it!
Thank your driver or operator digitally by sharing a note or GIF! We know they’ll appreciate your kind words!
