Join transit riders in cities across the nation tomorrow, March 18, for Transit Driver Appreciation Day. Because let’s face it: operating a bus or train is no easy task and no one’s getting rich doing it.
Operators have to keep a schedule, give directions, announce stops, remember stop requests, all while safely maneuvering an extra-large vehicle through unpredictable traffic, adverse weather conditions and some really tight spaces!
However, it is easy to show your appreciation for the hard-working men and women who operate our buses and trains.
- Smile and wave when you board the bus or train, and say “thank you” when you leave.
- Print out and personalize a thank-you card to show your appreciation in person.
- Submit an official commendation via CustomerRelations@metro.net for a job well done, so your operators can be formally recognized for their efforts.
You can also share your appreciation with us via social media! Use the hashtag #LoveMetroLA when posting on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and let us know which operators have made your travels better.
