Operator of the Year
The Operator of the Year recognition program began in 1978 to instill pride in operators by meaningful recognition of their excellent driving performance and customer relation skills.
This program recognizes operators who make a positive contribution to the Metro System. The award is presented by King County Department of Transportation Metro Transit Division to operators who demonstrate safe driving skills, courteous and helpful attitudes toward customers, and who pay conscientious attention to job requirements such as attendance, appearance, discipline, etc.
Each month, one operator is selected from each of seven transit bases by the previous months' winners. At the end of the year, the Operator of the Year is selected by a vote of fellow Operators of the Month.
