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!
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 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!)
