Transit Driver Appreciation Day

Transit Driver Appreciation Day is
March 17th

Thank your driver!

Consider this…

Transit drivers do it all! For hours on end, they navigate tough traffic, help passengers get where they need to go, and do it all safely and with a smile. And they’re in demand—a key part of why the Seattle metro area leads the country in transit ridership growth. King County transit and rail operators carried more than 150 million riders in King County in 2016 for Metro and Sound Transit, and Metro Transit carries about 400,000 riders each weekday.

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

We’re celebrating with riders and commuters Friday, March 17 (the official international date is Saturday, March 18).

King County Executive Dow Constantine and transit riders across the county celebrate the contributions of our hard-working bus drivers, Access drivers and rail operators. Please take a moment to thank your driver—something as simple as a smile and a wave when you board the bus or train, and a "thank you" when you leave.

Our drivers are amazing! They transport hundreds of thousands of riders every single weekday to their jobs, their friends and family, and to important moments in their lives. Watch Rhonda Berry, Deputy County Executive; Harold Taniguchi, Director of King County DOT and several Metro customers on the street give thanks to Metro’s incredible bus drivers, Access drivers and rail operators.
