Transit Driver Appreciation Day logo March 18

Have you thanked your driver lately?


Transit Driver Appreciation Day is Friday, March 18th, 2016.

Transit drivers don’t have an easy job, they just make it look that way.

For hours on end, your driver manages to keep a schedule, check fares, give directions, announce stops, remember requests and more. All while safely maneuvering an extra-large vehicle through unpredictable traffic, tough weather conditions and some really tight spaces. Needless to say, they deserve our thanks!

Bus and train

On March 18, join us in celebrating our hard-working bus drivers and rail operators.

That could be as simple as a smile and a wave as you’re boarding and a “thank you” when you leave. You can also print out one of the cards below to show your appreciation or spread the word on social media. And don’t forget to submit an official commendation for a job well done, so your drivers can be formally recognized for their efforts. (You can do that any time of year!)

Help us spread the word!

Like us on Facebook and share #tdad with your family and friends.
