Transit Driver Appreciation Day

March 18, 2024

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 18, Transit Driver Appreciation Day, we encourage you to say thank-you, wave or give your operator a smile. They’ll love it!

Thank you in a heart

Thank your driver or operator digitally by sharing a note or GIF! We know they’ll appreciate your kind words!

You’re also welcome to join TriMet employees on the Portland Transit Mall in SW Portland as we say thanks to our drivers. We’ll come together from Alder to Yamhill on SW 6th, and Main to Jefferson on SW 5th from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feel free to stop by if you’re in the area!
