National Transit Driver Appreciation Day
Monday, March 18, 2019
Whether you’re commuting by bus early in the morning and taking a ride in the evening to visit a friend, Pierce Transit’s bus operators are there for you, day in and day out. They navigate you through unpredictable traffic, construction zones and tough weather conditions to get you where you need to go. They also provide help along the way, assisting people looking for their stop, helping people who may have lost their way and keeping their customers safe on board. They are bus drivers, yes – but they are also our friends, relatives and neighbors. Just like you, they live and work here and care about our community. And like everyone, they appreciate a “thank you” for a job well done.
We know you value our hard-working bus operators, and this month provides a great opportunity to let them know. On Monday, March 18, we’re celebrating Transit Driver Appreciation Day with people from across the country to commend our nation’s hard-working bus drivers. If you appreciate your bus operator, here are some ways you can brighten their day:
SAY THANK YOU
A simple “Thanks!” goes a long way! Operators would also love to hear how their efforts directly impact you. If you always exit through the back door, take a detour to the front to give them a shout-out. It will make their day! You can also give bus operators a shout-out on social media using the Transit Driver Appreciation Day hashtag: #tdad.
WRITE A CARD
If you’d like, a greeting card with a simple note is a great way to show how much you appreciate everything your bus operator does by giving them words that last longer than a moment.
BRAG ON THEM
Go to Pierce Transit’s website and tell us which operators do an excellent job. It’ll brighten their day and make them rock stars back at the office! On the form below, be sure to include your route number, general location, direction of travel and travel time so we can identify your operator and pass along your note.
Thank you for helping us recognize this important group of people who keep us moving, day in and day out.
