Transit Driver Appreciation Day

Transit Driver Appreciation Day is
March 18th.

Have you thanked your driver lately?

Consider this…

For hours on end, transit drivers manage to keep a schedule, check fares, give directions, announce stops, remember stop requests and more, all while safely maneuvering an extra-large vehicle through unpredictable traffic, adverse weather conditions and some really tight spaces! The fact is, transit drivers don't have an easy job, they just make it look that way.

On 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. That could be as simple as a smile and a wave when you board the bus or train, and a "thank you" when you leave.

See the video of the official proclamation of the event given by King County Chief of Operations Rhonda Berry to Metro's Operator of the Year, John Boone.
